5.0 out of 5 stars The mother of Elizabeth I makes for a good drama, July 3, 2003
This review is from: Anne of The Thousand Days [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Anne Boleyn, her predecessor, and the 4 who came after her as Henry VIIIs wives (three Catherines, two Annes, and a Jane) make for terrific drama, history, literature. Getting a dose of this Tudor lineage via a good movie makes the medicine go down easily. Anne B. was the first of his wives to die by beheading, and the role as played by Genevieve Bujold is well done in this rendition. That Boleyn was a woman before her times in terms of intelligence and wit makes her ultimate downfall all the more poignant. Her sin? She gave birth to a daughter (who would become Elizabeth I) instead of a son. Richard Burton, cast as the mercurial, mad, and ruthless Henry VIII, is masterful. Costuming and setting are spectacular.
Terrific theater!
