. England, early 18th century. The close relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill is threatened by the arrival of Sarah's cousin, Abigail Hill, resulting in a bitter rivalry between the two cousins to be the Queen's favourite.. The Favourite Wiki
There was nothing comedic about this movie. It was dark, depressing, disgusting, and a total waste of time and money. It was pretty much a trashy movie billed as art. I fast forwarded past a lot of the scenes that could only be described as pornographic. I am sorry that I was sucked in by some well advertsed reviews by the critics. I won't be watching any more movies by this Producer/Director.
The cast fantastic but the movie was a disappointment. Save your money.
The performances are stellar! The costumes of course are beautiful. The story is loosely based on actual history. Not for prudes, but it’s fantastic!
I have no clue why this movie won so many awards. Glenn Close was robbed from yet another worthy Lead Actress Oscar win. A totally stupid story line with and even more stupid ending. If your curius as I was about this movie. Don't waste your money or time that you can get back. Unless you have an endless supply of both that you want to waste.
I'm a fan of Olivia Coleman, but don't see this as her award winning performance,. This was a boring strange story. How this was won so many awards is a puzzle to me. Even the costume design was mediocre. I was looking for a good period piece movie. Glad I did't spend the money tosee in a theater
Entertaining look at the lengths women will go for love and power. Great cast, love Emma a Stone, but all the main actresses are amazing.
It had some funny moments and, yes, it was weird in a non-family way. I guess there were two points made in this movie: 1. Be careful what you wish for, and 2. Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorned.
Not worth the hype or awards.
worth to watch - the story, the actors, the camera, the directing...
Another reason to deliberately avoid any film nominated for multiple Oscars. It's some kind of sick joke on movie lovers.
Between the strange annoying music which was played throughout the movie, and the weird camera angles, plus the unclear plot I turned it off after 30 minutes. Now that’s 30 minutes and $6.99 I’ll never get back lol.
... just terrible.
AWFUL. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY.
There was so much potential here - the plot sounded great, the actors have all done awesome work in the past, and the awards rolled in. But after the first twenty minutes I was bored. The movie was done in too artsy of a way for my taste and the whole thing felt a bit forced. I wish I'd waited for it to come out on Netflix so I didn't feel oligated to watch the whole thing after renting it on iTunes.
Same as the other posters. Started off promising but quickly got boring. Wish I could get my money back.
Rent something else.
Terriblement ennuyant , long , et sans fin ... Aucune fin ....un des pires films à vie
Went down hill after 45 minutes. Had lots of potential and then quickly went downhill.
Wasn’t sure what to expect but overall enjoyed the storyline even though it is pretty dark. Strong performances by all 3 women, I thought it was Oscar worthy.
Disaaponted in the story. Not at all entertained.
