Yorgos Lanthimos, the director and co-writer of the dementedly hysterical The Lobster, is serving up another round of absurdity with The Favourite. This time, though, it’s set amongst 18th century English aristocracy.
If anything, the exquisite period costumes only ratchet up the wryness, especially when it comes to the amount of falling this movie seems to have. Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone appear to have a great dynamic triangle of some sort going on, which we’re digging.
See all of this for yourself in the trailer. Look for The Favourite in theaters on November 23rd.
