Review

Sister Queens is a fascinating side-by-side recounting of the lives of two women, sisters, who were both destined to be queens.  Though they both rise to extraordinary levels of power, especially for women during this time in history, and experience periods of happiness and satisfaction, they also survive long periods of suffering and impotence primarily due to the total lack of rights for women, rendering them completely dependent on the will and whims of the men in their lives.  Julia Fox portrays both Katherine and Juana as savvy, smart, and strong willed women despite previous depictions of them as passive, weak, or crazy.
