The Favourite

Biography Comedy Drama


 

Queen Anne is frail so Lady Sarah Churchill makes the decisions of state. That is until a new maid Abigail arrives and wants to become the Queen's companion.

The director of "The Favourite" is known for his originality and is the first to admit that he does not make straightforward films. Here the story is taken from history and loosely based on truth, but embellished for the screen in ways that are eccentric and unpredictable. The royal court is a world removed from reality, with scenes that will delight for their curious fantasy elements. Sumptuous and audacious filmmaking. Whiskers on kittens.
