MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS is a historical drama based on the life of Mary Stuart and her rivalry with Elizabeth I.

Violence

A frightened character is attacked by a group of men and stabbed repeatedly to death, resulting in bloody aftermath detail. A man is strangled, without strong visual detail. Men are shot or stabbed during a brief battle sequence, but there is no sight of blood. 

A scene in which a man rapes a woman features mechanical thrusting detail and male rear nudity. In another scene, a man protests as a woman gropes his crotch under his trousers in an attempt to arouse him.

Sex

A man is briefly shown thrusting into a woman from behind. Another scene contains a sequence of below-frame oral sex.

A woman is repeatedly referred to as a ‘whore’, a ‘strumpet’ and a ‘harlot’. A man is asked if he is a ‘sodomite’. The work as a whole does not condone discrimination.
