The Favourite

England might be at war with France, but in the 18th century courts of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman), duck-racing, cake-bingeing and mud-bathing reign. When new arrival Abigail (Emma Stone) charms her way into the affections of the ailing Queen, current confidante and political advisor Sarah (Rachel Weisz) finds herself embroiled in a battle of wills and wiles.
