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.

"Best of all, he makes us care about this women warriors who, without compromising their strength, also reveal their vulnerability and sorrow." - Rolling Stone

"The Favourite is a wildly entertaining, bracingly cynical comedy of royal manners directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. It's a farce with teeth." - The NYTimes

"The comedy is elegant, frequently dark and genuinely witty. The spectacle is gorgeous. The revisionism is gleeful." - Wall Street Journal
