My ancestor wrote stuff about this, Adam Blackwood. (by zach-childers)
Pretty cool my grandfather in the 16th century knew these people that the movie was based off of apparently he wrote about Elizabeth and Mary and more! Pretty cool!
it was everything. (by trishm23)
So excited to see this movie and it did not disappoint. i've seen so many bad reviews on here that make zero sense to me! the acting was incredible, the locations and costumes were beyond beautiful. I was so happy to see a diverse cast, it really enriched the film and I want to see this always. anyone saying this movie is terrible becasuse it's not 'historically correct' due to racial diversity, accents, and eye color needs to get a grip. think of how many movies use caucasian actors or actors with british accents when that's not 'historically correct'..stop being <more>
such a stick in the mud and actually enjoy this thought provoking and empowering movie!!
I'm no expert on 16th Century history, but I know enough of the period to know that this movie got the history of Mary and Elizabeth right. Some reviewers have taken issue with the race of some cast members, they are actors playing a part in a movie, get over it. What the movie is especially good at was the mood of the picture, They truly took you back to that time and place. The real tragedy is that so many people today would rather go to see the hundredth installment of Comic Book movie, rather than watch some really good filmmaking. Don't let the reviewers do you thinking for you, <more>
go see this movie, before more brain cells die from boredom.
Costumes - captivating Score - entracing Casting - superb Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie give respectively such inspiring yet heartbreaking roles. So incredible to see such deeply developed characters, not just from the two leading ladies too. Also incredible to say how much of a period piece such as this resonates with our world today. I laughed at times and cried at others. I felt angry and elated. A good movie makes you feel and it makes you think - that's what this film did. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a great deal of Academy Award or Golden Globe nominations here.
Riveting Drama (by ronterry55)
Just saw this movie and it was so good; I didn't want it to end. While the story of Mary and Elizabeth has been made before; I was fascinated by this story because of the leads. Saorsie Ronan and Margot Robbie are just terrific in the roles. The story moved along intercutting between the two queens. Ms. Ronan has the bigger role as Mary and is every inch the queen. Ms. Robbie as Elizabeth is very good, and becomes a hideous caricature of that queen as she ages. The machinations of the queens' courts and political intrigue that lead to Mary's end are fascinating. The costumes, <more>
makeup, cinematography and direction are all first rate.
I found this a more significant film than the previous user reviewers--one that will attract awards attention and hold its own against low-brow fare at the box office--like OUTLAW KING and FAVOURITE but even better. It is as much a commentary on contemporary gender politics as 16th Century geopolitics. Catholic Mary merrily rules without a priest or papal emissary in sight. To dwell on the myriad historical shortcomings is to look at this film the wrong way Ronan's commanding, coruscating performance seems an Oscar certainty. The colorblind casting worked out well. I'm so glad Gemma <more>
Chan is included. The film is so much from Mary's viewpoint that much of Elizabeth I's significance--both in history and as to the leading/supporting role question--is neglected. It would be great for the same cast and crew to be used in a movie from the other queen's viewpoint.
A powerful story about powerful women (by schappe1)
I'm shocked at all the negative reviews I see here. they seem to focus on the ahistorical meeting of the two queens and the use of black and Asian actors in some of the roles. The first is about dramatic license, something frequently used in historical movies, including the 1971 version of this story. Any competent dramatist is going to want his two antagonists to confront each other and I think it's forgivable. As to the second, I recall Kenneth Branagh did the same thing when he cast Denzel Washington in "Much Ado About Nothing" a generation ago, saying that black actors <more>
should be able to play Shakespearean roles besides just Othello. Josie Rourke, the director of this film, must have had the same idea.Like several of the reviewers here, I decided to see this and "The Favourite", a different story but also a story of women running Great Britain, abit a century and a half later. That film is highly praised and also has good performances, but i enjoyed this one better. It was more serious, less saucy and had, easily a better and clearer ending, you can't top a beheading for that .The production values, as many have mentioned are good but it's the two lead performances that count. Saoirse Ronan, when her hair is wept back, looks something like Meryl Streep and seems to be on that kind of career path. She is regal and fiery, yet fun-loving and fearful and dominates every scene she is in. The roles I've seen Margot Robbie in are either as a sex-pot or a cartoon character but she gives us a memorably neurotic but sympathetic Elizabeth. they are the reasons to see this movie and they are very good reasons, indeed.
The Best Queen Mary/Queen Elizabeth Period Film So Far! (by hammit)
I just got back from seeing this film it is only playing at one theater here in Knoxville, TN and I really enjoyed it! I didn't find it to be as boring as some other movies from this time period, this was mostly due to th me acting of the film's main characters Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth. Saoirse Ronan's timing, emotion, and delivery of her lines really made me sympathize with Mary's story. At the same time, you could see a lot of parallels in Queen Elizabeth's story that really connected the two in a unique way. Obviously, Saoirse Ronan is playing the lead <more>
and does a fantastic job, but we get to see Margot Robbie play a role in Elizabeth that we don't typically see her in one that really showcases her dramatic acting talent . She does a fantastic job as well, and almost steals the show! The fact that they had to use prosthetics to make her appear less attractive is a compliment to her beauty, but she is much more than just a pretty face. I won't get into the plot because I hope if you're reading this you'll go see the movie , but I felt pretty moved and satisfied when the credits rolled. That is saying a lot coming from me because I am very picky when it comes to what I'll pay $10 to see in a theater these days. It does have a few social issues in it, but they are relevant to the plot and the movie does not obnoxiously shove a political agenda or social justice in your face nor does it sacrifice a good plot for it . It wasn't too much and it was relevant to the story. The costumes, sets, and visuals are awesome! I also enjoyed the cinematography. Overall, in my opinion, this movie is worth the ticket price and is also one that I will purchase when it is released on Blu Ray!
A good reminder not to be prejudiced about a film before seeing it! (by coombsstephen)
As soon as I saw trailers for MQOS, knowing a bit about the history of this period, I thought that for sure this would be another rewriting of history. Then reading some reviews seemed to confirm this which made me very sceptical about seeing it.So I was pleasantly surprised to see that, although there was some rewriting history, it did not detract from the film, wasn't what I expecting and was quite inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.I thought the film itself was excellent, Really well paced and well acted. The costumes and scenery are also a thing of beauty.Having seen both, <more>
I really don't understand how The Favourite got such critical acclaim over this, similarly timed release, period drama but I guess that's what opinions are all about.
