The Queen (2006)

Dir. David Macdonald / UK / 1947 / 1h 31m / b&w

A young orphan girl named Mary arrives on a remote Hebridean isle to become a servant to the Macraes, a family clan who are arch rivals of another family on the island, the McFarishes. Her arrival inflames a murderous competition between the sons of the duelling families with both Fergus and John determined to wed her.

A rarely screened British melodrama from the Gainsborough studio (from a ground-breaking script by Muriel Box) with glowering landscapes and the evocative quality of a Scottish ballad.
