THE FAVOURITE (2018) was honored with an AFI AWARD, recognizing it as one of the year’s most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image. According to the official AFI AWARDS rationale, “THE FAVOURITE ascends the throne by capturing the sumptuous insanity of life behind castle walls and then raising a scepter to smash each scene with wicked laughs, an air of erotica, revenge and rabbits. Yorgos Lanthimos’ brilliantly warped vision of history crowns a royal cast, including Olivia Colman’s towering take on the fickle and frail Queen Anne. Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz leave a mark as cousins warring for the heart and hand of the queen, with audiences blissfully bloodied in the struggle between survival and a ravenous reach for power.”
