A bawdy, acerbic tale of royal intrigue, passion, envy and betrayal in the court of Queen Anne in early 18th century England. At the center of the story is the Queen herself (Olivia Colman), whose relationship with her confidante, adviser and clandestine lover Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) is turned upside down by the arrival of the Duchess’s younger cousin Abigail (Emma Stone). Soon the balance of power shifts between the women as they jockey for influence with the Queen and the court.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos
Written by Deborah Davis & Tony McNamara
Starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Mark Gatiss, Joe Alwyn, and Nicholas Hoult
Release Date - November 23, 2018

i'm not a fan of period pieces, and i myself haven't fully embraced Lanthimos--but how unpredictable life is indeed, for i expect this one to win me over on both accounts. he makes total sense to me in this context, both for reasons i can explain and unaccountable reasons related to inner impulses
