A new poster for Mary Queen of Scots is here to remind you that England has seen its fair share of strong women leaders, and in this case, multiple at once.
The poster features our two leads, Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie) and Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan), both wearing intricate golden dresses, on a gold backdrop, staring down the viewer. The caption says it all: “Bow to No One”.
The film explores the turbulent life of Mary Stuart, queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18. Instead of quickly remarrying, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne, to the dismay of England’s Protestant Queen Elizabeth I. Both women square off against each other as they fight for their right to rule as unmarried female monarchs. Check out the trailer here.
