Mary, Queen of Scots, she lived a full life and more as this historical film shows. The actress, who played Mary, Camille Rutherford, is a revelation. I wish to see her in more films. I felt the film was quite well-done and I am surprised it has not been seen, reviewed or commented on by more film buffs. Definitely worth it for those of you who enjoy period films based on historical figures and past events. Costumes, screenplay and direction was exceptional. The sound track was a bit off but I suppose it was more in tune with the impending doom that was to come to Mary. It isn't melodramatic at all. Very to the point, and I liked the fact that it took you in to her thoughts and mind and not be merely an observer to her life. Well done. 7/10.
