Mary Queen of Scots (DVD)
|Availability:||On Order 24 copies|
SummaryQueen of France at sixteen, widowed at eighteen, Mary Stuart defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, she also has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I, who rules as the Queen of England. Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens, driving them apart, as each woman experiences the bitter cost of power.
"Two crazy-good actresses and a modern political resonance rule in the 16th-centruy period drama..."--USA Today
"Director Rourke exhibits confidence an enthusiasm in dealing with such juicy material in the company of her two outstanding young actresses."--Hollywood Reporter
"Rourke's film feels well suited to the #MeToo moment, contrasting Mary and Elizabeth's far different strategies for maintaining what each believed to be her God-given legacy."--Variety
