The Favourite will be ready to release on 23rd of November this year. The film is starring Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman in pivotal roles. The film is distributed by Yorgos Lanthimos and the distrubutor is Fox Searchlight Pictures. The Favourite belongs to the drama genre.

Forget the social propriety commonly associated with 18th century England and prepare for a vicious competition between two ruthless corset-wearers.

The Favourite revolves around the fragile Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz), who governs the country on her behalf. Then there arrives a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone), Sarah finds herself competing for the Queen’s attention, leading to her waging a vicious battle to secure her connection to the throne.

The trailer offers a glimpse at the heated performances delivered by the period drama’s leads, who can antagonize one another are comedic. The preview of precious pieces from veteran costume designer Sandy Powell, which look flawless even when soiled mud or bird’s blood.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, who helmed the art house shocker The Lobster (also starring Weisz), The Favourite wowed EW’s Chris Nashawaty during the Telluride Film Festival this weekend.

Impressed by “glorious” turns from all three stars, Nashawaty notes the film “couldn’t be further from the corsets and curtsies of your typical Hollywood prestige period piece. It’s more like All About Eve directed by a Satyricon-era Fellini all hopped up with enough sex, deviance, hypocrisy, decadence, and spicy profanity to make your average Masterpiece Theatre patron reach into their PBS tote bag for some smelling salts.”

The Favourite, which also features Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, and Mark Gatiss, is set to hit theaters on November 23.
