The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

this movie is excellent for a myriad of reasons, one of them being that it revolves around three women who all vomit over the course of the runtime and none of these vomiting sessions play into the trope of being indicative of a burgeoning pregnancy. they all vomit for different reasons too, and each reason reveals something about their character: anne vomits because she’s sick (both sick without sarah’s company and physically sick), sarah vomits because she’s been poisoned and is in pain, and abigail vomits because she’s drunk (on both “good wine” and power). I love the ladies vomiting cinematic universe.
