Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan). Queen of France at 16, widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, she also has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I (Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie), who rules as the Queen of England. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Rivals in power and in love, the two Queens make very different choices about marriage and children. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens–driving them apart, as each woman experiences the bitter cost of power.




  • Ridiculous

    Attempt at re-writing history to be relevant today. Two good actors who were terrible and embarrassing to watch. Not for any person seeking the fascinating history of this relationship and time; instead this is a facade that has a b movie look and d movie screenplay.
  • Really liked it:)

    I don’t understand all the negative reviews. This movie is so entertaining to watch. Margot Robbie is the best!
  • Worth the 5$

    Excellent movie
  • history distorted

    By LucasSu
    1. Queen Mary's husband was King Philip of Spain, not Henry Dudley. 2. Queen Mary was not tolerant to all beliefs at all. She executed numerious protestants, and that is how the nickname "Bloody Mary" came from. Still loved the film, costume, acting, historic sciences. So just one star.
  • Vain attempt at multiculturalism and revisionist history

  • Fantastic acting and costumes

    Don’t expect accurate history, but do expect brilliant acting, cinematography, and costume design.
  • No Love / Just Brutality

    I figured out most movies are judged accurately by audience scores not by critics ! Except for the great acting by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie this film sucked ! No Love whatsoever.

    Waste of the rental fee and 2 hrs of my life. Bad all the way around. I enjoy historical dramas, but this was a joke.
