Talk and Q&A 1hr, Interval 15mins, Film 2hr mins.

Following the success of the first 'Talking Film' in October 2018 popular local historian and art historian Joanna Cobb returns to the Wells Film Centre to present this special evening.

Joanna's introductory talk will highlight events prior to the film's action, including Mary's French connection, the longstanding 'auld alliance' between Scotland and France, and the chequered often bloody history of the Stuart dynasty before and after the events depicted in the film. She will also analyse key images of both Mary and Elizabeth I as well as taking a look at some of the locations featured and their actual counterparts. The talk will end with a discussion around issues of historical accuracy in art, literature, drama and film, followed by an interval and screening of the film. A handout to accompany the talk will be available on the night.
