Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.
MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
Starring Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, David Tennant

“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.” – IndieWire
“Rourke’s greatest achievement is the performances she’s coaxed out of her two lead actresses. They’re so good they’re like De Niro and Pacino in Heat.” – The Times
