The Favourite (15) 119mins

Winner of the Best Actress (Comedy or Musical) Golden Globe, BAFTA and Oscar for Olivia Colman and 7  BAFTAs including Best British Film and Best Supporting Actress for Rachel Weisz

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 Churchill governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail Masham arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Starring Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, Jenny Rainsford and James Smith.

'The Favourite is an absolute riot, a scabrous and wickedly enjoyable bodice-ripper that makes the dastardly deeds of Dangerous Liaisons look positively tame' Financial Times

'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' The Times

'extravagantly wonderful, deeply hilarious and fabulously entertaining'  The Playlist

'A fantastic little cupcake of a movie laced with thistle frosting' Time Magazine

'Honest, searing and surprisingly modern, it's knocked Mrs Brown off my top spot once and for all' GQ magazine

'The script is sensational' The Independent

'What makes The Favourite work are its women - who rule, both literally within the movie and outwardly, dominating our enjoyment' Time Out
