The Favourite

The Favourite ★★★★★

A world where no one tells the truth, no one expects empathy but everyone wants power. Every time there’s a cathartic release of emotions and a storyline seems to conclude on a gratifying note, another detail is added that deconstructs the entire predecessor of emotional satisfaction. However, the dirtiness and dryness of the characters is often purposefully exaggerated and allows such a psychologically demanding story to have endless humor. I wanna eat cake with Olivia Colman.
