This is a 1971 British biographical drama directed by Charles Jarrott.
Although it is based on the historical events, the film takes considerable liberties to achieve increased dramatic effect, in particular two fictitious face-to-face encounters between the two Queens.
In real life, both queens never met.
It also depicts Mary as enjoying a late-morning cup of hot chocolate in bed.
She even requests it when she is a prisoner, but in reality hot chocolate was not a popular drink in the British Isles until well into the 18th century.
In any case, it is a fascinating and dramatic account of the two Queens.
