    The Favourite


    Some notes:

    -- Amusing/horrorifying that the fate of millions rests upon the temper tantrums and petty arguments of a histrionic queen and the conniving Machiavellians that orbit her. Entombed in lavish opulence, the disconnect between the real world and the court is as absolute as the queen's power.
