In the process, he broke relations with the Catholic church of Rome and created an independent Church of England. The new marriage lasted three years before Anne fell from favour, and lost her head to an executioner's sword. The story of Henry's earlier affair with Anne's sister, Mary Boleyn, was less well-known until the bodice-ripping novel on which the film is based hit the bestseller lists. The Boleyn family are a bunch of scheming social climbers, preparing to prostitute their daughters to the king to improve their station. Chucked out of France by his irritated wife, Mary sashayed back to England and casually notched up her second kingly conquest.

The Other Boleyn Girl - Movies - Review - The New York Times
It is a fictionalized account of the lives of 16th-century aristocrats Mary Boleyn , one-time mistress of King Henry VIII , and her sister, Anne , who became the monarch's ill-fated second wife, though much history is distorted. King Henry VIII 's marriage to Catherine of Aragon is troubled as she has not produced a living male heir to the throne, having only one surviving child, Mary. Mary Boleyn marries William Carey. After the festivities, Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk and his brother-in-law Thomas Boleyn plan to install Boleyn's eldest daughter, Anne Boleyn , as the king's mistress, with the hope that Anne will bear him a son and that she'll be able to improve her family's wealth and status. Anne's mother, Lady Elizabeth Boleyn , is disgusted by the plot, but Anne eventually agrees as a way to please her father and uncle. While visiting the Boleyn estate, Henry is injured in a hunting accident that was indirectly caused by Anne. Urged by her scheming uncle, Mary nurses Henry.
