Chris’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love movies where people are hilariously petty. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, The Favourite is an absurdist comedy disguised as a historical drama. The interactions between Anne (Olivia Colman), Abigail (Emma Stone), and Sarah (Rachel Weisz) are all endlessly entertaining. The costume design is some of the best of the year. This is a movie I highly recommend, assuming you are a fan of Yorgos Lanthimos’s previous films. I’ll write a more detailed review after I’ve had time to process the film a bit more.
