Movie Review – “The Favourite” (2018)

 

 

“The Favourite” is probably the strangest beast of cinema we’ve had in ages. Imagine if a battle of wits similar to “There Will Be Blood” had the cinematography and production design of “Barry Lyndon” but also traded in the Shakespearean style for a more modern wit and sense of humor, while also centering around multiple lesbian relationships. And yet, all of this works stupendously, always entertaining while looking gorgeous. The performances from the three leads (Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz) make for quite possibly the greatest love triangle in all of cinema. It’s the most unique movie in years so do yourself a favour and catch its infectous charm.

Final Grade: A-
