"Mary Queen of Scots" explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (played by actress Saoirse Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie).
Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
Against this epic historical background is Max Richter's sweeping new score. Lavish and orchestral, it features eclectic vocal layered pieces. It is music that evokes drama, emotion and intensity - written to match one of the most gripping and powerful real-life stories in history.
