It’s queen versus queen in the ultimate royal rumble deathmatch! In this corner is the sickly but powerful Queen Elizabeth (Margot Robbie) and in this corner is the challenger, the new young upstart with a claim to the throne of England, currently Queen of Scotland, Mary (Saoirse Ronan). Of course, that’s the movie we THOUGHT we were getting. But this is totally Mary’s film as she navigates the complicated waters of dealing with a paranoid England and strife at home as many are not happy about a Catholic sitting on a throne in a largely Protestant country. Especially a wacky-bearded dogmatic David Tennant. But what did we think of it? Listen to Chris, Ben, Taylor, Zach, Alan, Frank, and Marco to find out.
