Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos
15, UK/Ire/US Period Drama 120m
Kicking off our new Award Winners season of films - one each quarter - is this highly divisive Oscar winner. Exploring the overlooked reign of Queen Anne (reigned 1702—1714), the film focuses in on a love triangle / power play between the ailing monarch (played with real melancholia and mania by Olivia Colman) and her ’favourites’ Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) and Abigail Masham (Emma Stone).
These three stunning female performances are at the core of the film’s majesty, as Lanthimos takes Deborah Davis’ long-dormant screenplay and recalibrates the period drama as something modern, punkish and political.
Features strong language, sexual content and scenes of animal cruelty.
