From acclaimed director Yorgos Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER) and set in the early 18th century, THE FAVOURITE centers on a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman), who occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
