Mary Queen of Scots Blu-ray – BFI Release

Mary Queen of Scots Blu-ray

This new release only states that it is “Presented in High Definition” or 1080p. No mention of any restoration work which sounds a little concerning.

However the BFI has released a clip which I’ve added at the bottom of the page.

There’s a decent set of extras including interviews, booklet and a reversible sleeve.
