That daring brunet minx Anne Boleyn (Natalie Portman) tells her virtuous blond sister Mary (Scarlett Johansson) that love is meaningless without position and power. Anne learns the opposite is true in The Other Boleyn Girl. This rendering of the turbulent second marriage of England's King Henry VIII (Eric Bana) proves too heavy-footed for the old movie two-step of setting up a morality tale, then exploiting it for heat and titillation. The Other Boleyn Girl (Columbia Pictures) Starring Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana.

The Band's Visit -- A rapturously low-key comedy about an Egyptian ceremonial police band that flies to Israel to help open an Arab cultural center but arrives at the wrong town. (M.S.) PG-13 89 minutes A+ The Bank Job -- In swinging England 1971, a slick British secret agent coerces a Cockney beauty in a jam to get a crew of her old friends and local "villains" to rob a Lloyd's Bank. Because the bank has been the repository of dirty secrets held by crooked cops, gangsters and whore-mongering ministers and aristocrats, the story is a gift that keeps giving.

Fred Nelson was sweating. He had 15 minutes to catch his breath, change into royal garb and prepare to make the biggest entrance of his life: as King Henry VIII at the annual Maryland Renaissance Festival, which opened yesterday in Crownsville. "The only thing that has me nervous is my shoulder," he said. "It's twitching, and I have a sword fight later. " The festival, which started 25 years ago in Columbia and moved to Crownsville as it grew, is one of many such fairs throughout the country that pay homage to Shakespeare's era with costumes, shows, craft vendors and general revelry.

Richard Cleaver's sculptures, made of ceramics, paint and sometimes wood, are meticulously crafted, ingenious essays in the falsity of the created image.His show at Goucher, called "Public Histories, Private Lives," deals with the difference between the persona we try to put forward for the world to see and the real person who hides behind the mask. It deals, too, with how difficult it is to escape the role that one's world (parents, peers, socioeconomic status, etc.) thrusts upon him or her.Two of these works, "Queen's Closet" and "Court Dress," deal with two of the most familiar stories in European history: Henry VIII and his wives, and Marie Antoinette and the fall of the French monarchy.

British historical dramas are so deliciously paradoxical.Distinguished playwrights from Shakespeare onward have elevated the majesty of the English language to dizzying heights, all for the purpose of re-creating the moral cesspool that was British monarchical politics.In the most elegant language the world has ever heard, treachery,malice and intrigue are spun together to weave tales of violence, hypocrisy, duplicity and avarice that make the Nixon White House look like the Miss Muffett Nursery School by comparison.

WHAT ARE we to make of Ashton Kutcher's new series, Pop Fiction? Kutcher, the creator of Punk'd - a show I dislike heartily - has now turned his trickery on the media, staging events with real celebrities (or faux celebs like Paris Hilton), fooling paparazzi and other press outlets. Kutcher says, "We're having fun, but we want to say to people, `Can you really believe everything you read and see?'" Uh. Really? I'm shocked, shocked to discover that things aren't always what they appear to be. I didn't believe Paris Hilton on Larry King, talking about changing her life, so why would her participation in a "real" stunt, change my outlook about the media, how it feeds off celebrity and how celebrity feeds off media?
