The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

Yeah, what a trio. Brilliant casting. Loved it. Probably the most accessible of his films, more so than The Lobster, I think because he doesn’t use the stylised sort of Brechtian approach with his actors here. It’s much more naturalistic (even within the rompy, mad, exaggerated world / style). Fun, vital, full of immediacy though it’s set in the past.
