I can't embed the tweet for whatever reason, so I'm placing a link here showing Saoirse doing some promotional photos with other notable actresses....

Eileen O'Higgins at MQOS premiere at AFI Fest in LA this week.

I'm guessing that Saoirse was still in Boston working on Little Women. (?)

Nice pic....

Saoirse has followed in the footsteps of Katherine Hepburn by playing both Mary Stuart and Jo March.  Which Hepburn role is next up for her?  Should she be mentioned in the same breath as Hepburn?  (They're both strong minded women.  Hepburn was steely.  Saoirse must have some of that too.)

jlent LOL I was worried too. I know I personally will like it because I enjoy this types of films, and I could tell the angle they were shooting for (ei female gaze) from the first trailer, but still I worried about so many people complaining about historical inaccuracies (so what?), and because of the fact that the story has been told many times before. I'm happy with the reviews so far  :)

(now I'm worried about Little Women lol)

So am I. Why was the shoot so short? Six weeks at most.
And where was Meryl?

I really need to relax.

Sort of a review digest. Love the headline:
"Mary Queen of Scots reviews stoke Oscar fire for 'savagely strong' Saoirse Ronan"

https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/16/mary-queen-of-scots-movie-reviews/

I swear I'm going to stop worrying about her soon.

Alongside the great reviews for MQoS, apparently LW has already wrapped according to IMDB :o. Never expected it to be that quick, but I guess it gives time for Saoirse to promote for MQoS. I know she's at least attached to the LA Times roundtable, so that's something to look forward to.

It's now 10 for 10 on Rotten Tomatoes with a 100% rating.
Todd McCarthy at Hollywood Reporter likes it:
Quote
For nearly 500 years, writers have conveniently ignored the fact that the two cousins never actually met in order to deliver the longed-for dramatic goods and Willimon is no exception, as he and first-time director Josie Rourke stir the juicy royal rivalry while also playing up their female solidarity in the face of male power plays and religious shenanigans...

Director Rourke exhibits confidence and enthusiasm in dealing with such juicy material in the company of her two outstanding young actresses...

Playing a teenager who could scarcely be more different than the modern one she portrayed in her last film, Lady Bird, Ronan shows off an entirely different set of skills here as a young regent. Mary's fatal flaw may lie in a certain complacency about her position in life, as if her birthright assures her of her status come what may...
.
Ronan carries the film with fiercely individualistic spirit, but the one thing she can't measure up to is the real Mary's actual height she was 5 feet 11 inches, which allowed her to tower over most women as well as men in those days.

Great start....
