The Favourite (15)

Director Yorgos Lanthimos. Biography/Comedy/Drama

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. Queen Anne occupies the throne but is frail, so Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. New servant Abigail arrives and while Sarah is caught up in the politics of war, she fills in as the Queen's companion. Their friendship gives Abigail a chance to fulfill her ambition of returning to her aristocratic roots and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

The acting and setting were excellent. Some people felt that the depiction of sexual scenes was unnecessarily graphic and added nothing to the film.

Well made, well acted but a knowledge of the history of the period needed to fully appreciate the plot.

Went down really well. Audience engrossed, and no adverse comments (despite very strong language)
