A film by Yorgos Lanthimos

Starring Emma Stone, Olivia Colman, and Rachel Weisz

Winner of Golden Globe Best Actress (Olivia Colman) in Comedy/Musical.

In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Colman) occupies the throne, and her close friend Lady Sarah (Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and a mercurial temper. When a new servant, Abigail (Stone), arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.

"Bathed in a score of Vivaldi, Bach, and Purcell, it's Lanthimos's most watchable movie to date, and also his best. The Favourite is a triumph in textures, a beam of light through a window." - The New Republic

"Yorgos Lanthimos's The Favourite is wonderful, nasty fun, a period drama (wigs, breeches, beauty spots) that holds the screen with gnashing teeth and slashing nails." - New York Magazine
