Mary Queen of Scots is a 2018 historical drama film directed by Josie Rourke and written by Beau Willimon, based on John Guy’s biography Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart. The film stars Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart and Margot Robbie as her cousin Queen Elizabeth I, and chronicles the 1569 conflict between their two countries. Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, David Tennant, and Guy Pearce also star.

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. The film spans roughly 25 years, starting in 1561 as Mary, Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne and become queen.
This Catholic teenager is cousin to Elizabeth I, Queen of England, a Protestant, who is concerned that Mary may try to claim her throne as well. Each young Queen beholds her cousin in fear and fascination.
Rivals in power and in love, and female monarchs in a masculine world, the two women fight to have the upper hand, surrounded by male advisors who often believe they know better.
Elizabeth rules England, but with no heir, her kingdom’s future is uncertain. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty, but she must be careful lest her scheming provoke an invasion from the English army.
Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.

Mary Stuart would not have had a Scottish accent, as her mother, Mary of Guise, was French. She also lived in France from the time she was five until she was eighteen. She most likely spoke with a French accent.
