This is the sort of film that will usually bore the hell out of me. From time to time however, I will be surprised by a period piece. The Other Boleyn Girl wasn’t a favorite of mine, but it held my interest and I wasn’t disappointed for seeing it; I consider this a victory for a “gown movie”.

Kristina brought to our attention how many dresses Keira Knightley seems to wear in her films, and I have been laughing at this observation ever since.

  1. “Somebody did a ritual chant with a Ouija board, cut off a lock of hair, and chanted Anne Boleyn’s name three times in a mirror. When they turned around, Keira Knightley was standing there. I’m CONVINCED of this.”

    Rofl.

    I didn’t like The Other Boleyn Girl. Didn’t like how they pictured Henry in it. Elizabeth: The Golden Age, on the other hand, is just awesome.

    I don’t mind Keira in dresses, or her being typecast. If that’s the kind of role she likes to play (or BE), go ahead. Every actor has their own fave type of role.

    As for the poster… BAAAAAD. She looks dead. Just. Dead. that’s the kind of expression you wear while queuing in a post office. Or trying to look mildly interested to what Uncle Bill has to say about his farm. Or something.

  2. Ikea Knightley playing the lead? In a period drama?
    Uhhhmmm…..no thanks, I think I rather cut my toe nails instead.

  3. And “Kristina” should look up “victorian” in a dictionary before using the term again. Keira has played exactly one character who belongs to that category.

  4. Not typecast at all. The idea that all characters from more than ten years ago are exactly the same is ludicrous.
    The Duchess of Devonshire has virtually nothing in common with Cecilia Tallis from Atonement or Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.

  5. I think she like wearing all these dresses and corset’s because it make it look like she has cleavage. She would be dangerous with a boob job.

  6. If she’s been typecast, it’s her fault. Nobody put a gun to her head and made her sign on for period piece after period piece. Go to IMDB and check her filmography. This girl has been in Oliver Twist, TWO Robin Hood movies(she was in a Disney one before she was famous), Pirates 1, 2, and 3, Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, a movie called Silk about 19th century France, a movie called The Edge of Love set in World War II, and she’s about to shoot King friggin’ Lear. Hell, even her bit part in Episode I is from A LONG TIME AGO in a galaxy FAR FAR AWAY!!!!!! She’s a reincarnated Victorian chick, I’m certain. Somebody did a ritual chant with a Ouija board, cut off a lock of hair, and chanted Anne Boleyn’s name three times in a mirror. When they turned around, Keira Knightley was standing there. I’m CONVINCED of this.
