  • Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie shine in this exceedingly of-the-political-moment telling of a compelling story; Director Rourke exhibits confidence and enthusiasm in dealing with such juicy material in the company of her two outstanding young actresse

    4 of 5 by Helen O'Hara [Empire Magazine ]
  • "Mary Queen of Scots", visually dull and intriguing in only the most generic sense, but still a showcase for the twin talents of Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie
