“In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.”
A totally good movie that starts out very well but that gets a bit boring by the end.
Thought that The Favorite was going to be a very dramatic ,movie, that was the felling I got from seeing the trailer, which I have nothing at all against … but it actually also had some comedy in it and some pretty funny scenes.
The Favorite is beautiful to watch for a movie lover, the cinemotography, the outfits, the environment… but the pace and the plot did unfortunately made this movie quite slow after a while as I mentioned above.
The actors are very good and Olivia Colman who plays the queen is really good … and she got a well deserved oscar for it.
Not a movie for everyone but for those who like these types of movies that takes place around the 18th century it is definitely worth watching.
