After the downfall of Cardinal Wolsey, his secretary, Thomas Cromwell, finds himself amongst the treachery and intrigue of King Henry VIII's court and soon becomes a close advisor to the King, a role fraught with danger.
It is one of the most foul appropriations of a book title. The plot bears only a tenuous resemblance to the book and is heinously created writing, casting, directing, production, acting everything will give you a total disappointment, even if you didn't read the book.
If you did, and specially if you also read The Pillars of the Earth and then watched the excellent miniseries spawned from it, you will be left with only one thought; how could a highly sold author like Ken Follett accept such treatment of his work? I would have understood from an on-the-rise unknown, but a famous author? No way. The man must be senile.
Don't waste 320 minutes on this crap. You have been warned!
