DIRECTOR: Josie Rourke
STARRING: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, David Tennant, Guy Pearce
An exceptional performance from two amazing female stars, in Saorise Ronan and Margot Robbie. The film explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart, (Ronan) Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, who defies pressure to remarry and returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Robbie).
“An epic look at the intimate frustrations of two massively powerful young women who spend most of their energy navigating between who they are and what they represent.” INDIEWIRE
“You probably know how this story ends, but Rourke makes the getting-there suspenseful even so.” TIME
