Henry VIII of England divorces his first wife, Katharine of Aragon, who has failed to produce a male heir. Instead, he favors the young and beautiful Anne Boleyn. Henry weds Anne and soon she gives him a child. The girl, Elizabeth, is a bitter disappointment to Henry, who desperately wants a male heir. Anne promises Henry a son, but Henry is doubtful. Jane Seymour is at court and Henry's wandering eye has found her. The Queen has her sent away, but, if Anne will bring Jane back to court, the King promises to sign the Act of Succession to insure that Elizabeth will be Queen. Anne's one-thousand-day reign as Queen of England ends with the loss of her head on the block.

A reasonably believable depiction of the Henry VIII / Anne Boleyn saga. Well acted and beautifully costumed and photographed. However, Anne's tirade against Henry when she was in the tower waiting execution was ridiculous. This never happened and cheapened the story line.
Mary, Queen of Scots never met Elizabeth. Her story was far more complicated than shown in the film. But it was entertaining.

Of the two, "Mary, Queen of Scots" is the better. Which is ironic, in that the strongest character in that film is not Mary, but her cousin Elizabeth.
