Mary Queen Of Scots
This is a dark and bloody take of this history told in beautiful settings. The formality of a queen of this day was a bit toned down and earthy
existence from what we would usually see, even if she did have several maidens waiting on her. There are several black people cast too.
Were there African blacks in Scotland or was this some casting director filling a quota? It is a very well acted movie that tried to hit the tone
right for the times. They did a very good job at it. The scenes delelope fully and the pacing is just right. They get a lot of things right with this
one. I enjoyed it but it is a bit brutal, as were the times, I guess.
