The Favourite (Yorgo Lanthimos)

Wednesday, 14 August 2019 18:53

Yorgo, the Greek, is a provocateur. He already did it in Lobster and The Killing of the Sacred Deer. Now in The Favourite tells the story of two maidens who dispute the favors of the sick Queen Anne of England in the early XVII century. A magnificent trio of actresses (Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone) surrender to Yorgo's twisted humor to give their best. It is a cryptic and bizarre film, where the director abuses the patience of his fans.

Only with some shots of gin.
