Lady Jane was the first leading role for a very young Helena Bonham Carter, and a film debut for the renowned theatre director Trevor Nunn. Plus its an amazing story. So, surely nothing could go wrong?

  1. This doesn’t seem to work for me. Nothing happens when I hit play and the “Download” leads to an error message. I’ve tried several times- anyone else have this problem? The other podcasts in the series are working.

  2. Oh boy, comments. I didn’t realize you were doing movie review, so yay for that.

    I first saw this film shortly after my first child was born. I was 21 and filled with post-baby-birthing ick and therefore, I LOVED this film. Like, pink puffy heart googly eyes loved it. Cried like the proverbial baby at the end. Howevah. I also knew a lot about Lady Jane Grey (she’s been an obsession of mine since spending a year in England as an impressionable 13 year-old) so I knew most of it wasn’t historically accurate. Somehow I was able to separate the mushy love story from the history and just enjoy the film. That said, I haven’t re-watched it since then, so maybe it hasn’t held up as well. I shall give it a watch and see how I feel about it now, lo these many, many years later.

    1. Hi Julie. I must admit that all I knew about Lady Jane when it came out was the sort of Victorian story my mother had told me. It was a bit slushy for me I have to say. Wolf who had not seen it, was not impressed it must be said!
