Review: The Favourite

Eddie Kaziro reviews the highly anticipated period-parody.

Eddie Kaziro, Nouse, 7th January 2019

The Favourite is a vicious, rollicking period comedy

Colman's Queen Anne is sweet and giddy and transparently bonkers.

Ryan Gilbey, The New Statesman, 2nd January 2019

The Favourite: a laugh rate on a par with Airplane!

Consistently, relentlessly hilarious, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are on top form in this deranged court comedy.

50 best films of 2018 in the US: No 7 - The Favourite

Yorgos Lanthimos's nutty slab of period fruitcake, about a rivalry in the court of a gout-ridden Queen Anne, is deservedly becoming an Oscars frontrunner.

Review: The Favourite

Yorgos Lanthimos's historical picture features a starry cast trading veiled insults and clearly having a great time.

The Favourite review

Yorgos Lanthimos brings scabrous energy to this dark comedy of 18th-century court intrigue and Colman excels herself.
