top class entertainment, 17 Aug. 2004
Whilst this film may not be historically accurate on all counts, it is nevertheless fantastic entertainment.All involved give great performances, however the interplay between Burton and Bujold is faultless,both delivering moving yet passionate performances.The scene near the end of the film,when Henry visits Anne in the Tower,offering her life if she denys Elizabeths claim to the throne, is one of the finest in film history. Having fallen in love with this film at the age of 13, to this day it remains one of my all time favourites, as it fantastically brings to life the pageantry, romance, and politics of the day. An absolute gem.
