I had to watch this movie in pieces, many pieces. It was just too dramatic for me to watch all at once.

I liked Scarlett Johanssen more than Natalie Portman in this movie.

This movie was okay.

I watched the Deleted & Extended Scenes. I liked the extended version of the "The King's Fortune." "Anne Takes Little Henry" is interesting, but I'm not sure how it would have affected the movie. "Alternate Ending" had a couple extra pieces of text. I preferred the fade out of the alternate ending more than the freeze frame used in the film.
