Magic Movies with Sky Cinema: Mary Queen of Scots is a historical tour de force

Discover a new premiere every day this Christmas on Sky Cinema.

Christmas is a fantastic time to relax and watch some brilliant movies and one that’s sure to entertain audiences is Mary Queen of Scots.

Available now on Sky Cinema, the critically-acclaimed film depicts Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth the 1st, the Queen of England as well as the aftermath of that event.



Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry and instead returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.

But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I and each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Mary and Elizabeth vie with each other for love, authority and influence as they each seek to fortify their respective thrones.

Then, 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 endanger both thrones – and change the course of history.

Featuring stellar performances from Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, this is one movie drama lovers will be thrilled to sink their teeth into this festive season!
