‘The Favourite’ – Jan 1

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the man responsible for the brilliantly weird The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Favourite takes us to 18th century England, where the nation is at war with the French and a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman) occupies the throne. Hilarity ensues as her trusted advisor (Rachel Weisz) and new chambermaid (Emma Stone) compete to be the monarch’s, well, favourite.
