Movie Night - The Other Boleyn Girl
This was a great show but so sad. Women were traded like cattle and used like assets. Fathers traded their young daughters for monetary gain.
My husband, son (Jake for his college graduation) and I visited Hever Castle (Ann Boleyn's childhood home), when we were in England last year. We saw paintings of Ann hung on the walls. Having seen her home and family paintings, makes this story/movie seem tangible and real. It was very emotional.
And, in reality, Ann Boleyn looked a lot like my niece, Serena. At least I think so, what do you think?
What a rough world it was. Thank God we’ve come a long way baby!
Here are a few photos we took of Hever Castle.
