62nd London Film Festival | The Favourite

The Favourite Emma Stone

Wielding blade-sharp words rather than daggers, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are cutthroat rivals for the affections of Olivia Colman’s needy Queen Anne in The Favourite, a scintillating comedy-drama set in early 18th-century England. Weisz’s strong-willed Lady Sarah Marlborough is the queen’s intimate confidante and adviser; Stone’s Abigail is Sarah’s impoverished but wily young cousin. And as the duo vie and scheme for the upper hand, the movie delivers fizzing wit, sumptuous costumes and sets, and a trio of stars at the top of their game.

The Favourite screens tonight at Cineworld Leicester Square at 7pm and at the Embankment Garden Cinema at 7.45pm, and at the Curzon Mayfair on Sunday 21st October at 8.45pm, and goes on general release from Tuesday 1st January 2019.
