The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★½

"I'm on my side. Always".

A vicious viper, a sly fox and one crippled badger play the cunning game called love. An abstract form that is both limited and immeasurable. Needs, conditions and purposes are forever destined but equally interchanged. Love challenges the structure of hierarchy. Social status, the power of sexuality and the commitment to war - both physically and mentally - take your pick. It's a constant battle and you'll probably lose one way or another, even though you might play different games.

First watch, a strong favourite. Second watch, a favourite tale of love.
