MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS


February 1 – 7
MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS

Nominated for both best costume design and best hair and makeup, Mary Queen of Scots is a retelling of the turbulent life of Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan), based on the book “Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart” by Dr. John Guy. Queen of France at 16, at 18 Mary is widowed, defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, Mary has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), who rules as England’s Queen. Contrary to earlier accounts, and based on Dr. John Guy’s research, we see Mary as a capable politician and leader who wanted an alliance with her cousin Elizabeth. To secure their thrones, the two Queens make very different choices. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens.
Dir: Josie Rourke / 2018 / UK, US / 125 min

“These two performers hold you in thrall. That’s royalty.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The most spirited heart and poignant soul of ‘Mary Queen of Scots’ are Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as Mary and Elizabeth, whose contradictory relationship accommodates hostility, jealousy, admiration and sisterly love with affecting seamlessness.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“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.” – David Ehrlich, indieWire
