In 1561, Mary Stuart, widow of the King of France, returns to Scotland, reclaims her rightful throne and menaces the future of Queen Elizabeth I as ruler of England, because she has a legitimate claim to the English throne. Betrayals, rebellions, conspiracies and their own life choices imperil both Queens. They experience the bitter cost of power, until their tragic fate is finally fulfilled.

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._
This movie is complete trash. Watch only if you want modern politics shoved down your throat. The movie focuses more on LGBT rights then events related to the setting the movie takes place. Poor casting choices, horrible acting from A-list actors and low budget sets. Not worth streaming. Not worth pirating. Not worthing Seeding. Not worth the popcorn.
