Our December Screen 2 film will be Mary Queen of Scots...
Costume drama about Mary Queen of Scots, played by Saoirse Ronan, and the conflict in 1569 with England and her cousin Queen Elizabeth I.
Mary Stuart was Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18. She defied pressure to remarry and instead returned to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fell under the rule of Elizabeth I. 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 imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.
“This is a heartfelt, serious-minded film about 16th-century power politics from screenwriter Beau Willimon and director Josie Rourke, theatrically conceived, and influenced by Shekhar Kapur's Elizabeth.” Guardian
“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." Washington Post
