Mary Stuart

  • Produced by Arielle Tepper Madover

Seduction, greed and deception lie at the heart of the bitter rivalry between Mary, Queen of Scots (Janet McTeer) and her cousin, Elizabeth I of England (Harriet Walter).

After being implicated in her husband’s murder, Mary turns to Elizabeth for help but finds her cousin distrustful of her motives. Thus begins a bloody feud that will threaten not just their family bond, but the crown of England… Mary Stuart tells the story of two iconic women whose lust for power reveals one of the most thrilling displays of passion and politics the world has ever seen.
