It was off to the Odeon this afternoon to catch this latest historical movie – Mary Queen of Scots. I must admit, I didn’t know much about the two leading actresses – Margot Robbie as QEI and Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart, but it featured a great cast, including:-
David Tennant as John Knox
Adrian Lester as Lord Randolph and
Guy Pearce as William Cecil
There’s been a lot of talk about its historical accuracy (in real life, the two lead characters NEVER met and Mary did NOT have a Scottish accent – having been raised in France) and I’m also not sure that the Royal Courts of England and Scotland would have been so racially diverse at that time. So, providing you watch it for entertainment only, you won’t be disappointed.
Overall then, a very watchable film (providing you’re not making notes for your History homework) with great cinematography and a stirring soundtrack.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
