Clever is the word. Sharp would work, too. Capin’s reimagining of the story of Henry VIII and his wives is both of those things, on a number of levels. Sure, the dialog is snappy, but that’s really just the icing. The real triumph here is in the very real portrait of a culture that hasn’t actually changed all that much. One can’t, of course, easily get away with having an ex beheaded, but a smart, handsome football hero has other tools in his arsenal, least of which being an insidious cultural double standard. Fortunately, “Cleves,” and Henry’s other ex-girlfriends- the ones that survive it anyhow- have a few tools of their own. Fun and somewhat more satisfying than history.
