Featuring three strong female leads, The Favourite will take you on a mad, crazy, fun-loving ride. Be sure to catch it on the big screen - in cinemas Boxing Day.
Synopsis: Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way. Colman, Weisz and Stone are all nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globe Awards in what looks to be a very promising Awards season for the film.
