Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "Ronan, naturally, gives Mary some depth. She’s sufficiently egotistical to demand respect and brook no compromise with her subjects, often to a self-destructive degree." - 11/15/2018 Empire


"[A] spirited feminist take on the oft-dramatized tug-of-war between two 16th century British queens." - 11/15/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"With its strong emphasis on institutionalized sexism, Rourke’s film feels well suited to the #MeToo moment, contrasting Mary and Elizabeth’s far different strategies for maintaining what each believed to be her God-given legacy." - 11/15/2018 Variety


3 stars out of 5 -- "Debut director Josie Rourke sets her handsomely styled feminist melodrama off at a reckless gallop, as Ronan’s rebellious teen Mary Stuart returns to claim her Scottish throne, discovering that Elizabeth’s political and military power threatens everything." - 11/20/2018 Total Film


"Rourke, who comes to the film industry from the theater, has an eye for pageantry and staging that make even dull conversations about power struggles feel lively. John Mathieson’s oil painting-like cinematography plays well with the regal costumes of Alexandra Byrne..." - 12/06/2018 RogerEbert.com
