Two powerful Queens battle for one throne in the riveting and extraordinary drama based on a true story, Mary Queen of Scots, available now on Digital and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on 20 May 2019, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

A chronicle of two strong woman pitted against each other in an age of male dominance, the 16th century tale showcases bold performances from former Academy Award nominees Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in their roles as Mary I of Scotland and Elizabeth I of England.

MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS
Filled with manipulation, betrayal and deceit from start to finish, Mary Queen of Scots also features an outstanding supporting cast including Guy Pearce, Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Adrian Lester, Gemma Chan and David Tennant.

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan). Queen of France at 16, widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. By birth, she also has a rival claim to the throne of Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), who rules as the Queen of England.

Mary Queen Of Scots
Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Rivals in power and love, the two Queens make very difficult choices about marriage and children. Betrayal, rebellion and conspiracies within each court imperil both Queens, driving them apart, as each women experiences the bitter cost of power.
