God Save the Queen. The latest film from Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of the Sacred Deer) turns the period drama upside down, as three unique, calculating and unpredictable women run riot to snatch power and love from the highest bidders that they can.
Early 18th century England is a war with the French. nevertheless, duck shooting and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war consumes Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's intimate companion. The burgeoning friendship gives Abigail a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
