Mary Queen of Scots (2019)
Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.
However, Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Each young Queen beholds her sister in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.
Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court change the course of history.
