Engaging tale of two royal sisters

Mary Queen of Scots

*ing: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, David Tennant

Guy Pearce

Rated: 8/10

Historicals, by nature, are gripping sagas of the past, visuals on the history books we read and enjoyed. A lot many blockbusters have happened in the past on Mary Queen of Scots, her tragic life and oppression that she lives for most part after her French husband died early and she returned to England.

This one is also about her life, courage, Catholicism and her undying battle to be the undisputed queen of England on grounds of being more Stuart than the reigning queen Elizabeth. This one looks into the story of two sisters in Elizabethan England and their compulsions to be apart despite being compassionate to each other’s plights in a country driven by male intrigues, religious bigotry, oppression of women in general and everything that went with being the queen. Both the queens are impeccable in their performances and compel you to feel deeply for their limitations and compulsions.

Mary’s child, born out of a loveless marriage to a sodomising bisexual drunkard prince, does get to rule over England, Scotland and Wales but he appears so only in the closing credits.

All through this period drama is engaging which you should not miss.
