The Favourite ★★★½

A cool and fairly ostentatious dissection of sexual dynamics and historical rumour, punctuated by Lanthimos’ typical deadpan drollery.

It’s held together by an exceptional ensemble of players (Hoult has been soooo underrated) rather than its script, which regrettably mistakes acidity for wit.
