    A devout Catholic there is no way Mary was enlightened toward homosexuals as Hollywood would have us believe and there is no way she would have welcomed a homosexual man into her Inner Circle. In reality Lord Darnley was suspicious that Mary was having an affair with Riccio, which is why they killed him. Oh my how far Hollywood has strayed from the truth.

    There were zero black or even Asian people in Scotland at this time and very very few in England--why are the producers and the BBC always trying to show that black people had important roles in UK history--this spoils the whole movie---they may as well have been using motor cars rather than horses. Also anything LGBT did not play a part in this historical story.

    I normally love movies about royals and read a lot of historical novels as a result. This movie strayed too far from factual. I'm weary of the movie industry introducing gay characters (and too often vulgar language) into so many films these days but to do so in a historical film falsely is more than troubling, I'm not at all pleased with what's happening within the film industry these days and I'm beginning to boycott more and more movies as a result. I'm also boycotting more and more actors/actresses because of hateful public political rhetoric which is insulting to half their film viewers. Actors and Actresses should avoid political statements and concentrate on appearing in decent clean-cut films that touch the hearts of everyone without offending anyone.

    Superb acting. Fictional history but believable. Great scenery.

    Good period piece. I'm sure it had some inaccuracies but the acting was quite good.

    History as told by The Movies. Entertaining and PC (Politically Correct) just not HC (Historically Correct).

    Great film but too many historical inaccuracies, including: 1. Mary did not have a scottish accent. She lived in France from 5-18. 2. Her assistants were not diverse (african, chinese, gay) 3. Rizzio was not gay: lord darnley was not gay 4. The 2 queens never met. But a great film nonetheless.

    Great film. But yes, some historical inaccuracy. Namely, Mary's private secretary, Italian David Rizzio, was not gay. In fact, Mary's husband at the time, Lord Darnley, is said to have been jealous of their friendship, because of rumours that he had impregnated Mary. This is why he was killed, not because the queen's counsel was anti-lgbtq. Mary did not catch her husband in bed with Rizzio - another lie, and the scene where Mary forgives Rizzio because he was only acting out what was natural to him, ie being gay, is too much made-up englightenment for this cowboy to bear. Holywood, why are you so preoccupied with lgbtq?

    Revisionist history, poorly written, poorly directed and poorly produced.
