MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS RAT­ING: R13

Hol­ly­wood heavy­weights Saoirse Ro­nan and Mar­got Rob­bie go head-to-head in the epic new his­tor­i­cal drama Mary Queen of Scots. The story fol­lows ri­val cousins Queen El­iz­a­beth I and Mary Stu­art as they try to nav­i­gate their lives, each with a claim to the English throne. Both ac­tresses put on bril­liant per­for­mances and while not ev­ery­thing may be his­tor­i­cally ac­cu­rate, it makes for a thrilling ride none­the­less. And just be­cause most of us know how Mary’s story ends doesn’t make it any less of an en­thralling movie.
