The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★

The Favourite was absolutely gorgeous - the setting, the beautiful rooms of the palace and the tapestries, the gowns, the candlelight lighting, the title cards, the whole ambiance was extremely pleasing and enabled a total immersion into the movie. I was kept on edge throughout its runtime, wondering what the next move was going to be and who will end up having the upper hand. All three of the main characters were horrible and very cruel to one another, but also very complex and strong as they have had to endure a lot given the historical setting. Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone gave flawless performances. The characters, the sharp lines of dialogue as well as the various twists and turns of the plot make this an outstanding, memorable movie.
