The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★½

Some wounds do not close; I have many such. One just walks around with them and sometimes one can feel them filling with blood.

The film has wonderful set pieces, and one can certainly appreciate the effort that has been made to make the film look as authentic as possible. Unfortunately, though the film does suffer from some pacing issues and a questionable ending.

Both Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are appropriately catty and spiteful towards one another, and it is fun to watch how each one tries to outdo the other. Olivia Colman also shines as Queen Anne, clearly having fun playing up her character's eccentricities.
