I can't believe this is historical fiction, instead of actual events. The story is so well done and gives all the characters fair treatment in the execution. I Hope I will watch this again, the first time was such a treat. This film moves quickly with no time to rest. The royal families are sure in for it in a dangerous court, all are punished. I loved the acting through out. Thanks All.
love this movie no matter how many times I have seen it
