DVD General Information
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
For mature thematic elements, sexual content and some violent images
Anne Boleyn (Portman) is well known throughout history as the bewitching maid who drove King Henry VIII (Bana) to break ties with the Catholic Church in order to marry her, changing the course of English history forever. Who is not well known is The Other Boleyn Girl, Anne's younger sister Mary (Johansson). Her story was mostly ignored until recently

Reason #63 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
