The Favourite

What's it about?

The close relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill is threatened by the arrival of Sarah's cousin, Abigail Hill, resulting in a bitter rivalry between the two cousins to be the Queen's favourite.

Why did we pick it?

The Favourite mixes the traditional period drama with Lanthimos' unique and outlandish style making for a compelling and surprisingly crude film.

Who's in it? Olivia Colman - Queen Anne

Emma Stone - Abigail Hill

Rachel Weisz - Sarah Churchill, Lady Marlborough

Who made it?

Yorgos Lanthimos - Director

Tony McNamara - Writer

Deborah Davis - Writer
