The Favourite

Dir. Yorgos Lanthimos. Ireland/UK, 2018. 1h 59m. Starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Mark Gatiss, Joe Alwyn.

Back for one final huzzah! Yorgos Lanthimos’s uproarious black comedy about the dysfunctional love triangle between childish Queen Anne and two ambitious aristocratic women. Olivia Colman deservedly took home the Oscar for her magnificent lead performance.

‘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, The Independent

‘Wily, warped and ticklish - history viewed through cracked glass.’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
