Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. 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 fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
10 Academy Awards nominee, including best movie, and already winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Venice75, the latest film by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is a disturbing representation of the eighteenth-century English court, between opulence, rivalry and hypocrisy, beautifully portrayed by the three protagonists Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone.
