Fri Dec 21, 6:45 pm: Special intro with UNO Associate Professor and Department Chair of Political Science Jody Neathery-Castro, PhD. Join us as she shares her expertise on contemporary Britain, tying in Brexit and nationalism to themes in Mary Queen of Scots.

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her "sister" in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history. — Focus Features
