Review: The Favourite 5 Comments / Movies / By Virginia DeBolt / March 7, 2019 / Emma Stone, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Hoult, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, The Favourite, Yorgos Lanthimos I found The Favourite eccentric and odd. It was both off-putting and charming at once. This story about Queen Anne is best described as a farce. The performances from the three main (women!) characters were outstanding.
