"Mary Queen of Scots"…

Mary Queen of Scots

Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary Stuart defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her sister in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.

R. Drama/History. Directed by Josie Rourke. 2h 5m.

What the Internet Says

“Ronan (Lady Bird) and Robbie (I, Tonya) were both nominated for a Best Actress Oscar last award season, and even when the pace of the film falters, these two performers hold you in thrall. That’s royalty.” – Rolling Stone

Our Take: Another compelling historical drama to add to your movie list. Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie have already won us over.
