| I just couldn't care for her
It could have been a very good film. Majestic cinematography, costumes, music. Phenomenal performances by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. But while the filmmakers painstakingly recreated period costumes, hairstyles, and interiors they kind of undermined all that with modern sounding Queens and their modern looking courts. Mary, a devout catholic whose life would have been so much easier if she weren't so devout, tells a protestant soldier that they will all go to the same heaven. Even more unbelievably she forgives Rizzio (Ismael Cruz Cordova) whom she caught in bed with her husband (Jack Lowden) on their wedding night because he "can't help who he is." But my biggest problem was that as much as she was a victim at times, I couldn't feel for her. All she was doing was scheming. At least Elizabeth's goal was to rule her country. Mary only seemed to care about is getting the British throne.
