Mary Queen of Scots, starring Saoirse Ronan (seen on Broadway in The Crucible) and Margot Robbie as Mary Stuart and Queen Elizabeth I, respectively, marks the directorial debut of Josie Rourke, the artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse. Oscar and Emmy nominee Beau Willimon (The Parisian Woman) wrote the script.

The film, which premieres December 7, tells the story of the turbulent life of the 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 1. Mary's story has also been seen on Broadway, most recently in the 2009 revival of Mary Stuart, starring Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter as Mary and Elizabeth, respectively.

The film also features Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Martin Compston, Brendan Coyle, David Tennant, and Guy Pearce.
