I'm going to see it this weekend, and I am going in with this attitude - aesthetics only, no expectations of any kind of accuracy...

I hope they will at least have got rid of those medieval sets . . .

The movie looks okay, but I don't think I can endure historical inaccuracy much longer.

How true - with a little research, they would discover that it was a very colorful time indeed and not at all they way it looks today with all of the painted surfaces gone.  IMO, the chapel at Hampton Court best illustrates how beautiful everything was at this time.

Saw this last night and thought it was a bit pants really. Samantha Morton was very good as Mary but I have to say I was transfixed by those ghastly hair styles!!!

Haha, sorry Helen. If something is "pants" ...means its rubbish.

Sorry, I forgot that American "pants" and UK "pants" are two different articles of clothing. :-))
