The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

"Is there cake?"

A Kubrickian nightmare. A chamber piece of deceit and cruelty.

Aristocrats as children. Aristocrats as parasites.

No one is in control. There is no seat of power.

The endless drift of days filled with meals and fireplaces and seeping legs.

Every one, big or small, is a fragile bunny in a cage.
