Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, the charismatic Mary Stuart defies pressure to remarry and instead, returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of Elizabeth I. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within the court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
“MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS is no staid, stuffy period drama, as restrained as the breathing of corseted women. Instead, this a vital film, whose lace-trimmed bosom heaves with life.”The Playlist
