Based on British historian John Guy’s Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart, this biopic in flashback tells a brutally violent 16th-century tale of betrayal and political intrigue with explicit sex scenes and religious rivalry between Catholics and Protestants thrown in.

Violence: Mary is raped in one scene. A man is viciously stabbed amid scenes of war. A house is blown up.
Drugs: Wine drinking.
Nudity: No frontal nudity, but bare behinds can be seen; breasts can be seen through a clingy, wet nightgown; some women wear tops that show generous cleavage.
