The smart and compelling lead performances from Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are bolstered by support from UK acting talents Martin Compston, James McArdle, Joe Alwyn, David Tennant, and Jack Lowden. Both Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated, the captivating historical drama was directed by Brit Josie Rourke, co-written by the UK’s John Guy and produced by London-based Working Title Films.





After becoming the Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan) ignores pressure to remarry and returns to Scotland to reclaim her throne. However, as both Scotland and England fall under the rule of Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), a bitter rivalry ensues between the two Queens as they grapple with their place in a male-dominated world.
