New York Film Festival Opening Night Film The Favourite A Dark Comedy

Emma Stone stars in a deliciously dark comedy on 18th century royalty in the court of Queen Anne that looks beyond the pomp and circumstance to reveal a world of sexually charged intrigue. Stone plays a fallen-from-grace noble woman who finds herself a servant in the royal house, first to Sarah Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, played with measured cruelty by Rachel Weisz, then to Queen Anne herself, in a brilliant character display by Olivia Colman.
