The Favourite

Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos. Ireland/UK, 2018. 1h 59m. Starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Mark Gatiss, Joe Alwyn.

Early 18th century England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving! Yorgos Lanthimos’s (Dogtooth, The Lobster) bizarre black comedy about a royal love triangle between the emotionally wounded Queen Anne and two aristocratic lady lovers vying for her attention. Nominated for 12 BAFTAs and winner of Best Actress (Olivia Colman) at the Golden Globes.

‘It’s a hilarious, buffoonish pleasure, right down to the sets and costume design, and a breeze to spend 120 minutes with. All hail Lanthimos’s finest, most consistent film yet.’ ★★★★★ Christopher Hooton, The Independent

‘Wily, warped and ticklish - history viewed through cracked glass.’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
