The films of Yorgos Lanthimos are different, to say the least. Past films have been ‘The Killing of a Sacred deer’ and ‘The Lobster’ and now he returns with ‘The Favourite’.
The film takes place in 18th century England, and despite England being at war with France, Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) wants nothing to do with it, but the queen is more interested in food, yelling, and duck racing. Queen Anne’s right hand Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) is trying to figure out what to do with that little war problem when a new servant arrives in Abigail (Emma Stone). Abigail tries to figure out how to get closer to the queen and become the new Favourite.
Of course, you couldn’t really tell that with the trailer, which is something that most people look for in their trailer.
‘The Favorite’ is in theaters November 23, 2018.
