91st Academy Awards Best Picture Oscar nominee. Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos brings scabrous energy to this dark comedy of 18th-century court intrigue in 'The Favourite'.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne (Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Weisz) governs the country in her stead. When a new servant Abigail (Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
