Director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) delivers a new, strange, disaffected, oddly-comic drama with The Favourite. Featuring impressive performances by Olivia Colman (Hot Fuzz), Rachel Weisz (The Mummy), and Emma Stone (Aloha), this film will likely be an awards magnet, although not one to take your family and friends to. Designed for a VERY specific audience, you’ll either hate or love The Favourite.
Welcome to The Lobster, one of the strangest, most uniquely made films in the last several years. Prepare to be confounded. If Wes Anderson, David Lynch, and Terry Gilliam all had a baby and that baby made a film about love, trust, and acceptance, it would be The Lobster.
