While England is at war with France and an increasingly frail Queen Anne occupies the throne, Lady Sarah and new servant Abigail fight to be 'The Favourite' of their Queen. 

Sarah is Anne's closest friend, and is often forced to manage the country in her stead. And her absences from Anne's side give Abigail the chance to slip in and become the Queen's new companion, with a possibility of finally fulfilling her ambitions.

Men, women, politics or rabbits won't stand in her way in 'The Favourite', starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.

Stunning film

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2019-01-16

Genuinly stuned by this film. fab sets, fab acting, totally manipulatuve women. Scarry. Great sence of period... politically between middle ages, while not quite parlementary democracy. An example of absolute power corrupting absolutly.

Rubbish Film

Reviewer: ACE2Date: 2019-01-16

Over hyped and over here ! 2 hours of wasted time & money. Arty rubbish. A film to employ actors and not to entertain the audience. I hope it does not get any serious awards. I would much rather have watched Bohemian Rhapsody again & again.


Reviewer: Old WhiskersDate: 2019-01-16

I was looking forward to seeing this film but sad to relate, I found it totally boring. The acting may have been great but, from a film that was billed as a comedy, I waited in vain for a single giggle.
