The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

Abigail stepped on a rabbit and in the end became a rabbit. 

Everything about this film is so calculated. The pacing is great with the film written like parts of a play. The three leads are well acted with a deeply depraved and lonely Queen played by Olivia Colman and two women vying for the Queen’s trust in their own conniving and specific ways played by Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. The color scheme of the film, full of black and white blends into the confusing line of appearing good and manipulating others. 

There are many layers to be unpacked with this film.
