Well – considering my obsession with Anne Boleyn – number one shouldn’t come as a great surprise:

Anne of The Thousand Days

Geneviève Bujold channeled the spirit of Anne Boleyn to perfection.

Number 2:


Another story about another strong woman who refused to be silenced. Really, Rachel Weisz deserved an Oscar for her performance as the philosopher Hypatia.

Number 3:

A Man for all Seasons

A great, unforgettable movie set in the Tudor period.

The Lion in Winter.

Katherine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole are superb as the warring Henry II of England and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine.

The Duchess

Another great period drama.
