Movie Info

  • The Favourite n 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 a 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.

Movie Story

This greatly touted film hits DSM on Friday. I watched it last weekend & was less than thrilled. Two young women fight for the affection of Queen Anne during England's war w/ France. Great performances but a weird story & annoying filmmaking distracted me. Pretty dark film. B
