MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS puts you into the turbulent world of Queen Mary (Saoirse Ronan), the new and charismatic leader of Scotland, and Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), the established and powerful ruler of England. Mary believes it is her destiny, by blood, to rule all of Scotland and England, but Elizabeth and her court are determined to protect her reign. Rivals in power and love, these queens must navigate a treacherous path within a male-dominated world. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies imperil both of them -and ultimately change the course of history.

Thinking about them just in terms of their visual appearnce, Saoirse Ronan probably should have played Queen Elizabeth I instead of Mary, and Margot Robbie probably should have played Not In This Movie.
Perhaps it could have performed better, had it not come out the same year as both _Outlaw King_ and _The Favourite_, as its content lies somewhere between the two, but its quality pales to either.
_Final rating:★★ - Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal._
