Mary Queen of Scots
The movie “Mary Queen of Scots” was trending on Google Friday following its release in theaters. It brings together Academy Award nominees Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart, Margot Robbie as Elizabeth I and David Tennant as John Knox.
Directed by Josie Rourke and scripted by “House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon, the film is set in the 16th century when England is ruled by Elizabeth I.
Her cousin Mary Stuart has been living in France, but returns to Scotland aged 18 to reclaim the Scottish throne. The historical drama, about the rivalry and relationship between the two monarchs, has been broadly described by critics as entertaining and praised for its design and costume, although it has been panned for inaccuracies by one historian who said the two queens never met.
Dr. Estelle Paranque told the BBC that Mary, who was raised in France, did not have a Scottish accent, like Ronan does in the film, and that the initial friendship depicted in the movie trailer never existed.
The film is based on “Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart” by John Guy and premiered in New York earlier this week. storm the event, where a variety of products are sold, as it is one of the biggest annual sales in the country.
