Oscar winning film starring Olivia Coleman
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm at first endears her to Sarah but what follows is a battle for the affection and influence over the Queen
Against the backdrop of the costly War of the Spanish Succession in early-eighteenth-century England, the mud-covered former aristocrat, Abigail Hill, arrives at the palace with nothing, to beg for a job. However, with an ailing Queen Anne mostly tending to her furry herd of rabbits and the petulant monarch’s faithful confidante, Sarah Churchill, subtly running the country, it won’t be long before the castle’s newest scullery maid spots a golden opportunity to restore her status. Amid rapacious ambition, creative emotional manipulation, and hidden personal agendas, the ferocious female antagonists have no other option but to wage a silent war for the attention of the sad empress; nevertheless, what will it take to become Queen Anne’s favourite?
Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in the leading roles
