Reviews


92
TheWrap - Yolanda Machado
Ronan’s fiery Mary and Robbie’s emotionally complex Elizabeth truly reign divine on screen.
91
The Playlist - Kimber Myers
Despite its ruff collars and Elizabethan English, Mary Queen of Scots is no staid, stuffy period drama, as restrained as the breathing of corseted women. Instead, this a vital film, whose lace-trimmed bosom heaves with life.
80
The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
It is a finely constructed drama, avoiding stuffiness without slipping into camp territory and while diehard historians might disapprove, everyone else will be supremely entertained.
80
Empire - Helen O'Hara
A history lesson with more fire in the belly than most. It turns out that a feminist angle really can revive the same old Tudor psychodramas, thanks in large part to Ronan and Robbie’s authoritative performance.
80
The Telegraph - Robbie Collin
The film is led by a performance of thrilling regality and nuance from Saoirse Ronan as Mary.
