Mary Stuart's attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Josie Rourke said that the meeting of the two Queens was also inspired by the 19th-century Friedrich Schiller play ''Maria Stuart'', in which Mary and Elizabeth talk face-to-face on stage. "The whole conception of the film for me was around that meeting.'' "We really wanted to have our version of that famous scene, with these two women looking at each other and being confronted with their choices - their personal choices, their political choices. It's a moment that's deeply personal."
