IMO the book was and is the worst offender in the completely retarded inaccurancy department, so the film might even be worse. Seriously the author has Mary as the younger sister....what?! What nonsense.

I'll rent it, it'll be a lovely lush Tudor fairytale!

I too suspended disbelief and throughly enjoyed The Tudors series, I bought the 1st season months ago.....way to short a season! I agree that JRM was a weird very off choice though.
