We have a scourge upon our land. ‘Tis worse than pestilence and famine. ‘Tis a woman with a crown.
Mary Stuart’s (Saoirse Ronan) attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.
Directed by Josie Rourke and written by Beau Willimon and John Guy, Mary Queen of Scots is the latest in a long line of historical costumers that fudge history to suit heir own ends. From a technical standpoint it’s top draw, design, costuming and lead acting performances are quality – though Mary herself ends up being more cartoonish than anything resembling a tragic historical figure. Sadly, though, the narrative goes round and round in circles and ends up in a politically correct fog.
The pace is laborious, which makes the two hour run time something of a chore to get through. There’s little dangles of spice, with attempts at gay acceptance and oral pleasure etc etc, and things hit an upward curve in the latter stages, there’s even some smarts in the narrative where obsession with rites and rules of succession threaten to turn the pic into exciting politico/religio waters. Alas, it’s a false dawn, to the point where the costume design becoming the best thing in a production speaks volumes about a badly – on the page – historical drama. 3/10
Thinking about them just in terms of their visual appearnce, Saoirse Ronan probably should have played Queen Elizabeth I instead of Mary, and Margot Robbie probably should have played Not In This Movie.
Perhaps it could have performed better, had it not come out the same year as both _Outlaw King_ and _The Favourite_, as its content lies somewhere between the two, but its quality pales to either.
_Final rating:★★ – Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal._
Interesting yarn, it’s a shame it’s largely untrue.
Somebody else already called this film the “woke” version, and I would have to agree. A black counselor for Mary? An Asian noble woman in the English court? Wherever would they come from? It’s not like you could jump on a plane and be anywhere in no time in 1565 And if you could, that you would be accepted when you got there.. Rizzio, Mary’s secretary, and Darnley, Mary’s second husband, gay? I have actually heard rumors and seen productions about Darnley maybe being bisexual as far back as the 1970s, but at the time, to be homosexual was a crime punishable by death. I doubt that Mary the Catholic queen was so “with it” that she would consider Rizzio, here portrayed as openly gay, just one of her gang of ladies in waiting.
I’m just surprised there wasn’t a Hispanic in the cast. I’m sure that they wanted to include one, but the new world had hardly been explored at all by the 1560s so, nope, not even these producers would go that far. Oh, and Elizabeth and Mary never met, and Elizabeth was basically tricked into signing Mary’s death warrant.
Is it an interesting tale well told? I thought so. If this was an extension of Game of Thrones, or some other such fantasy drama that was only loosely tethered to the Middle Ages as it existed in Europe, it would have worked. But not as a historical drama. I will say the art design and cinematography were beautiful.
Where to being….
This movie was so godawful I just sat there in pure frustration! Nothing about this movie was accurate! Mary and Elizabeth never met!!!! Mary was raised in FRANCE, she would have NEVER have had a Scottish accent let alone a Irish one! The gay husband….seriously!? The diversity of the cast, was just unbearable….never would have happened in that time period!
Overall its 2 hours of my life I can never get back! Dont waste your time with this crap of a movie!
