Description

Showtimes announced Tuesday before opening day.

"Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie shine." - Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

"Ronan is note-perfect as Mary: vulnerable, terrifying, strong, sexy and effortlessly dominant when taking charge of the men who are trying to outsmart her."  - Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

Mary Queen of Scots is a retelling of the turbulent life of Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan), based on the book "Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart" by Dr. John Guy. Queen of France at 16, at 18 Mary is widowed, defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, Mary has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), who rules as England's Queen. Contrary to earlier accounts, we see Mary as a capable politician and leader who wanted an alliance with her cousin Elizabeth. Mary fights to govern her unruly kingdom at a time when female monarchs are reviled as montrous. To secure their thrones, the two Queens make very different choices about marriage and children. Mary's reputation is under continual attack from her enemies, who construct lies about her sexual conduct. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens - driving them apart, as each woman experiences the bitter cost of power.
