Hello everyone! Margot’s latest film “Mary Queen of Scots” was released on Blu-Ray today (check out our previous post for more information on how to purchase it), and I just picked up my own copy. I have therefore updated our gallery with screen captures from the film – just over 1000 in total! Margot played Queen Elizabeth I opposite Saoirse Ronan as Mary, and I thought both girls really killed it. Her brilliant performance earned Margot nominations for both a SAG Award and BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress! If you haven’t seen the film yet, make sure to purchase your own copy and check it out.
Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
