This is a film with some good intentions that failed to deliver. While the story of both of these monarchs has never failed to intrigue the masses,Mary Queen of Scots strips the titular characters of their nuances, much to the detriment of the film.
The film serves more like a powerful vehicle to show off Ronan's dramatic talent and Robbie's new-found range than to enlighten anyone about what actually happened to Mary and her relationship with Elizabeth.
Mary Queen of the Scots has a timely premise with a lot to say about toxic masculinity and women empowerment but never gets around to it, despite its brief sparks of brilliance that quickly die out before catching fire.
