The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

Certainly Lathimos's most accessible film, The Favourite is a historical, period drama about the relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill, and the latter's cousin, Abigail, who threatens said relationship. And, though it is the easiest Lathimos film for those who may not have got into his previous films too much, it still retains his trademark sardonic, sharp dialogue and stellar camerawork. The production is stunning, the acting even more so, and it completely engages you from start to finish, and that's coming from someone who isn't usually too keen on period dramas.
