Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Olivia Colman won the Oscar for her performance as Queen Anne in this scabrous comedy about intrigue and ambition in the royal household. Sarah Lady Churchill (Rachel Weisz) sees herself supplanted in the Queens favour, and bed, by the upstart Abigail Masham (Emma Stone), a young woman who will stop at nothing to regain the social status which her fathers gambling habit has compromised. Reverent, tasteful, restrained - The Favourite is none of these things. Its hugely enjoyable but be warned: it is sexually explicit and there are constant instances of both f and c words. Choose something else if you have a timid audience!Rich, ribald, often lethally vicious period farce. Sight and SoundBrilliantly bizarre. The UpcomingSalacious, savage and hypnotic. Urban Cinefile
