Music of drama, emotion and intensity – written to match one of the most gripping and powerful real-life stories in history.

Lavish orchestral score by Max Richter with significant main theme, and featuring eclectic vocal layered pieces. One of the most anticipated movies of 2018, and already being tipped-off as an early Oscar contender, featuring two celebrated, Oscar-nominated Hollywood actresses: Saoirse Ronan & Margot Robbie. From Working Title Producers of „Darkest Hour“, based on the book "Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart". “Mary Queen of Scots” explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Robbie). Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.
