Josie Rourke's Oscar-nominated period drama 'Mary Queen of Scots' got a release date for India. The film, which received Academy Award nominations under Costume Design and Makeup & Hairstyling category, will be released in India on February 1.

The film, starring Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Queen of Scots and Margot Robbie as her cousin Queen Elizabeth I explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart and is based on the book "Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart" by Dr. John Guy.

Saoirse Ronan who portrays the role of Queen Mary revealed that she learned a lot from the Queen.

"Mary has had an effect on me in a way no other character has done in a really long time," said Ronan, adding, "I felt stronger because of her. You are always being faced with difficult decisions, but there is something really reassuring about watching a young person who was in such a powerful position go through the same things. Just because you have this God-given right to rule doesn't mean that you don't feel fear or you don't feel vulnerable. What I got from Mary is the fact she took that responsibility on her shoulders and really found her own way. I found that really inspiring to play."
