GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER - BEST ACTRESS IN A COMEDY MOTION PICTURE FOR OLIVIA COLMAN
12 BAFTA NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST FILM, BEST ACTRESS (OLIVIA COLMAN), BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS (RACHEL WEISZ & EMMA STONE) & BEST DIRECTION.
"Colman, always brilliant, has never seemed more divine. If she’s not nominated for an Oscar, I will cry."
- Charlotte O’Sullivan, London Evening Standard
"A pioneer of the "Weird Wave" of Greek cinema, Lanthimos brings his outsider’s eye to period English costume drama in a film that loosens its corsets considerably."
- Emma Simmonds, Radio Times
"Lanthimos’ renegade deviltry turns a period piece into a bawdy, brilliant triumph. Expect Oscar to bow down to Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and the mighty Olivia Colman as Queen Anne for bringing a #MeToo punch to 18th-century British politics."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It’s a hilarious, buffoonish pleasure, right down to the sets and costume design, and a breeze to spend 120 minutes with. All hail Lanthimos’s finest, most consistent film yet."
-Christopher Hooton, Independent
"The Favourite is an absolute riot, a scabrous and wickedly enjoyable bodice-ripper that makes the dastardly deeds of Dangerous Liaisons look positively tame."
-Raphael Abraham, Financial Times
"Lanthimos doesn’t disappoint."
- Lewis Knight , Daily Mirror
"It’s Colman who steals the show. She’s ostensibly playing a gout-afflicted monster with capricious instincts and insatiable appetites...and she attacks this side of the role with gusto, shouting, yelping, whimpering and raging with Lear-like abandon."
-Kevin Maher, Times
"Weird, dirty but accessible, The Favourite is a perfectly performed, thrillingly made period picture that morphs before your very eyes."
-Kevin Maher, Empire Magazine
"What makes The Favourite work are its women -- who rule, both literally within the movie and outwardly, dominating our enjoyment."
-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"Lanthimos has transferred his own peculiar vision of human oddity into the past, in a way that makes most period drama seem formulaic and inert."
-David Sexton, London Evening Standard
"Wily, warped and ticklish - history viewed through cracked glass."
-Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"It’s a rousingly nasty, bleary, hungover punch."
-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
In the early 18th century, England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, and her close friend Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.
