Mary Queen of Scots

Mary Queen of Scots

TIME OUT SAYS

How much fun would it be to watch an alternate version of Game of Thrones in which all the boring men cowered behind trees while two female dragons circled overhead? You may be wondering about that while taking in Mary Queen of Scots, visually dull and intriguing in only the most generic sense, but still a showcase for the twin talents of Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. Ronan’s a little stiff here, playing the titular role, Mary Stuart, uneasy in the saddle, and wasted on moments of grandeur. Fortunately, Robbie is happy to pick up the slack as England’s ruling Elizabeth, exuding loneliness and fury in her gilded cage. Joshua Rothkopf
