Film: Mary Queen Of Scots (15)
Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty.
Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) rejects the expectations for her to remarry and returns to Scotland to claim her rightful throne, but Scotland and England fall under the rule of the defiant Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty and throwing the idea of a peaceful kingdom into turmoil. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.
