Basically everyone at the theater where I saw this movie had the same reaction. We didn’t know what to think of it but we didn’t like it. It was just kind of stunned silence.
You honestly never leave the atmosphere of this movie until you are dismissed. Definitely the most Award worthy film of the winter. Do not miss it.
This is less Lanthimos’ film than it is Colman, Stone, and Weisz’s. The Favourite is mostly an excuse to watch these three attempt to one-up each other.
[Yorgos Lanthimos'] fabulously entertaining tragicomedy, The Favourite, is a juicy power tangle connecting three women in the royal court of early 18th-century England, played by a divine trio who bounce off one another with obvious relish.
The Favourite is one of those rare films where the energy generated by three talents at the top of their game and the energy generated by their characters swirl and merge in a perfect storm.
