Wig! Forehead! Heavy powder! Saorise Ronan and Margot Robbie are coming for the Oscars the 2017 awards season denied them. Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots — scripted by Beau Willimon — is the battle of high cheekbones: Mary Stuart (Ronan) is attempting to usurp her cousin Elizabeth I (Robbie), and take her place as sovereign of England. According to my high-school world history textbook, Elizabeth I technically comes out the victor, but Miss Sir Shaw isn’t giving up this crown without a fight (and a few tense exchanges and maybe a war). See Mary Queen of Scots this December.
