Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL is an historical drama which focuses on two sisters competing for the attention of King Henry VIII.

Sex

There are two sex scenes that are brief, discreet and do not feature nudity. There are references to the consummation of marriages (eg “Did the King have you?”).

Language

Characters are directly and aggressively referred to as 'whores'.

The film also contains the implication of two executions by beheading. No detail is seen beyond the swinging of the sword or axe.

There is a brief scene in which the King, frustrated by Anne Boleyn's refusal to submit to him, forces himself upon her. This is suggested through Anne's pained expression.

There are un-detailed references to incest.
