FRIDAY THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL
8.35PM, SBS ★★★
An enjoyably trashy account of King Henry VIII’s women troubles while trying to produce a male heir to the throne. Most of the monarch’s grief comes from the beautiful Boleyn sisters, one already married and the other a hothead. Much more fun than Cate Blanchett’s Elizabeth: The Golden Age, but lacking the substance of Helen Mirren’s The Queen. Stars Eric Bana and Scarlett Johansson.
