There is so much to appreciate about this film. The performances from all three leads are fantastic, especially Olivia Colman. The movie looks beautiful, and the score is wonderful. The script is also terrific with witty dialogue, dark humor, and an engaging story that subverts your expectations. There is a lot of drama, with an underlying sense of depression in each of the three women that escalates until the very end. Overall, I really liked The Favourite, but it was a lot to digest. I think I’ll grow to love it upon rewatch.
