SummaryAdd a Summary
This movie was based on the best selling novel of the same name. A tale of intrigue,romance and betrayal. The Boleyn sisters are forced to advance their familie's position in court by seducing King Henry of England. In the process of helping their family , the sisters become rivals and much heartache follows. The era had no respect for women and the film is a strong reminder of the truth behind the seemingly over worked statement : " you've come a long way, baby"

Sir Thomas Boleyn: "To get ahead in this world, you need more than fair looks and a kind heart."
Anne's mother:Observe the ladies of the court. See how they achieve what they want from their men, not by stamping their little feet but by allowing the men to believe that they, indeed, are in charge.
Katherine: You want me to creep away and become a nun? Well, i shall not. You want me to lie before God and admit that my first marriage was consummated? Well, it was not. You want me to retire and give up my daughter's claim as sole rightful heir to the throne? Well, i shall not. Not in a thousand years. Not if you rack me to within an inch of my life. I am Katherine, Queen of England..........
Katherine: So.......the Boleyn whores. Two former ladies of mine. What have did i do to upset you that you should turn against me like this? Anne: You failed to give England an heir. Katherine: And that upsets you so?
