The Favourite ★★★½

Never was a chamber so spherical in such gracious sheen. Never were chambers so voided in dim-lit secrets in tense nights. And never were the dramatics, stuck in the greyest clouds hung over the sick green of the surrounding fields, so delectable and ripe. Kisses in the dark, soft and stolen in a romance of dominance and unequivocal power, power infused in each gaze, each move, each knife-sharp, razor-edge piece of posh poetry. The tongue is a powerful tool. Where it goes and what words it may say. And equally powerful, the actions it narrates.
