Rated: R for some violence and sexuality
What it’s about: The Scottish queen who angled for power in the 16th century and faced off with her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I
The kid attractor factor: Teens may be drawn to the period piece, as well as stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Standing up for what you believe in and demanding power can make you a target. Sacrifices must be made for political power.

Sexuality: Several sex scenes, not graphic, some nudity
Parents advisory: A fascinating period piece appropriate for all teens
