H54’s review published on Letterboxd:
Yorgos Lanthimos Brings As A Very Interesting And Really Fascinating Project "The Favourite". Now I Am Not A Crazy Fan Of Historical Movies But I Do Watch Some Of Them When I Am In The Mood.
So This Is The Story Of The Favourite!:
England, early 18th century. The close relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill is threatened by the arrival of Sarah’s cousin, Abigail Hill, resulting in a bitter rivalry between the two cousins to be the Queen’s favourite. And I Think This Movie Is A Refreshing And Weirdly Funny Experience All Along.
Its A Great Visual Product , So Many Complex Set Pieces And Fantastic Production Value To The Amazing Performances By Olivia Colman And Emma Stone That Were The Highlight Of The Entire Movie Surrounded By A Story Of Jealousy And Rivalry. Its A Great And Weird Experience All In Once , If You Like Historical Movies You Will Definitely Love This. Yorgos Lanthimos Really Outdid Himself With This While I Have Only Seen Dogtooth I Do Plan On Watching His Rest Of His Filmography In The Near Future. Nontheless Really Enjoyed This Weird And Pretty Funny Film "The Favourite And I Can't Wait To See What Yorgos Lanthimos Has Next For Him.
