The Favourite

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

FEATURED REVIEW
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

Few movies over the past decade have rocked me back on my heels quite like Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’ 'The Lobster' back in 2016. It was the kind of movie-going experience for which the phrase “love it or hate it” was coined. Between its straight-faced WTF surrealism, its deadpan line readings ...
