Mary Queen of Scots (15)
Tuesday, June 25th
Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie slug it out as the rival Tudor queens in this enjoyable if fanciful historical drama, with David Tennant as the fulminating misogynistic preacher John Knox.
“While Ronan is terrific, Robbie has arguably the more difficult role, conjuring an engaging portrait of someone whose position has made her “more man than woman”. It’s a credit to Robbie that Elizabeth’s anguish shines through the stony visage behind which she is increasingly forced to hide.” The Guardian
“Making her feature debut as director, Josie Rourke presents an unevenly balanced juggling act of fact and faction, which she describes as “a Renaissance version of Heat”. Scriptwriter Beau Willimon gives the material a keen feminist slant, while bolting on contemporary diversity values, upfront sexuality and clear allusions to current fake news debates.” Radio Times
“Lush and ravishing period piece.” The Telegraph
