Yorgos Lanthimos’s (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) outrageous period comedy stars an enviable assemble cast of Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.
A frail and capricious Queen Anne (Colman) governs an 18th Century England at war with France. At her side is Lady Sarah (Weisz), her carer, confidant, lover and de facto ruler of England. As the politics of war consume Lady Sarah, a new servant to the Queen, Abigail (Stone), cunningly usurps the beleaguered Lady Sarah.
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos. 120 minutes, UK / USA / Ireland, 2018
