Historical drama starring Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. Mary Stuart (Ronan) returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her throne at a time when England is ruled by her cousin Elizabeth I (Robbie). Despite both announcing their desire for peace Elizabeth feels threatened by Mary's legitimate claim to the English throne and when she produces an heir Elizabeth regards this as a direct threat to her sovereignty. This provocation leads Scotland and England closer to war as betrayal and rebellion threaten both thrones. The cast also features David Tennant and Guy Pearce.
As many people have pointed out, this film is certainly not historically accurate so if you're the kind of person who needs that you'd leave feeling disappointed. The performance of tSaoirse Ronan in the title role is very good. If your are looking for a good historical / period movie this just might be for. Recommended with a 7 out 10
