The Favourite

Ireland/UK/USA, 2018, 120mins, Cert.15

Film description

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. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, two women soon become rivals for the Queen’s affections in a wickedly funny game of one-up-womanship.

The latest from Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster) is a delightfully witty, darkly comic romp, and winner of this year's Grand Special Jury Prize at Venice Film Festival.
