Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz give outstanding performances in The Favourite, an outrageous period comedy directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.

MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS
FRI 29 MAR
3PM & 6.30PM | 15

Australian actress Margot Robbie is said to have been terrified to follow in the footsteps of Cate Blanchett to play Elizabeth I in Mary, Queen of Scots. It took a lot of convincing from Director, Josie Rourke and yet Robbie has now been nominated for a BAFTA for Supporting Actress.

This new film tells the story of the fraught relationship between the cousins that pitted England and Scotland against each other in the 16th century. Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution.

Saoirse Ronan stars alongside Margot Robbie and at the age of twenty four, is astounding critics with her portrayal of Mary Stuart.
