Lack of good storyline.
A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
I normally wouldn't write a review for this, but seeing so many negative reviews I felt compelled to. So many of those reviews are about how The White Queen was great and this didn't live up to it, but I feel the compete opposite. I found The White Queen rather boring and frankly just hard to even get through. I thought The White Princess was much better and although only filmed several years after, it has a much more modern feel to it, as far as production quality goes. I can't speak to the historical accuracy, but I really liked the storyline. To be fair, I am a big Jodie Comer fan, so I'm definitely a little biased, but I thoroughly enjoyed The White Princess a lot.
I loved everything about this show, I wish it never ended!!!!!
I thought this was better than The White Queen. I noticed it was a Starz production and so far I've liked their work. This is a little less ambitious. This is based on a good book rather than history itself, but having said that, the show did manage to have an actor that actually resembled Henry VII, which for me was just enough to be persuaded to be embroiled. And the plot is embroiling, and, in regard to history, the plot only really takes license from those facts that even history is still wondering. That's a winner for me.It's a lavish, intense, psychological drama with the ever present violence of the day hanging over all, brilliantly acted with perfect costumes and excellent production. Nitpicking ...... I docked The White Princess two points for the rather sparse and cavalier manner of the street processions. In history these processions have far greater pomp and cast. Like The White Queen, both shows needed to up the grandeur. The battle scenes however were historically much better.Thoroughly enjoyed.
I think the series was a waste time. I loved the White Queen more, actually there is no comparison between the two ! Henry Tudor's character is just so lame and boring, lots of scenes contained useless dialogues.. could be to stretch the episodes period as much as possible.
