The Best Drama Of 2015, Hands Down

By CaliCoastReplay

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Wolf Hall Blu-ray:

I saw Wolf Hall as it was broadcast, and it blew me away. This series is a period piece exploring royal advisor Thomas Cromwell's role at the court of Henry VIII - this during the time he marries, then tires of, grows to hate, and executes, Anne Boleyn.

If there is one line that defines the production, to me, it is Cromwell's "How many men can say their only friend is the King of England?" It explores Cromwell's machinations to stay alive and gain favor in a court where, as series author Hilary Mantel puts it, "Man was wolf to man."

In staging and cinematography it is the antithesis of the effects-laden but heart-removed cinema that defines our era. For a grand period piece on the court of Henry VIII, it seems to possess almost a simplicity, a humility, from the very start. The depth of history being explored is immense and the personality imbued in the material is astonishing.

Mark Rylance, Damian Lewis, Claire Foy, Charity Wakefield, Anton Lesser, and Jonathan Pryce all turn in astonishing performances as Thomas Cromwell and King Henry VIII, Queen Anne Boleyn and Mary Boleyn, and Chancellor Thomas More and Cardinal Thomas Wolsey respectively - but all the acting is superb.

I can't recommend this set enough. It rivets from start to finish.

Beatiful format and unbelievable performances. Takes all the dryness out of the novel and makes you see the story from an entirely new light.
