‘Olivia Colman is priceless’ (Peter Bradshaw) as the middle-aged Queen Anne, burdened by a weight problem, gout, depression and grief from a series of miscarriages. Her favourite is the cunning and ambitious Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) – but Anne is fickle, and when Sarah’s cousin (Emma Stone) appears at court, the two vie for the Queen’s affections. Director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) brings a wickedly subversive touch to this year’s Venice Grand Jury Prize winner. ‘The Favourite is a filthy, violent and outrageous period comedy that drips with bad language and worse behaviour’ – BBC.
