A fantastic adaptation of one of my favourite books. Eugene Hutz is an absolute revelation in this movie!
The Favourite boasts precision direction, cinematography to frickin die for and a trio of lead actors who deserved every single plaudit and ounce of praised heaped upon them for their role in this production. It is no accident that Olivia Coleman is cast as Queen Anne because the woman rules, plain and simple. Every role she plays, she knocks it out the park just a little further than before and she is only going to get better which is all the more exciting a prospect.
