THE FAVOURITE - See it first at Moonlight!

Not for the faint hearted – see the 5 time Golden Globe nominated dark comedy THE FAVOURITE at our Moonlight advance screening. 

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) 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.

 

Best of all, he makes us care about this women warriors who, without compromising their strength, also reveal their vulnerability and sorrow. Full review

Rolling Stone
The comedy is elegant, frequently dark and genuinely witty. The spectacle is gorgeous. The revisionism is gleeful. Full review
