THE FAVOURITE

The Favourtie is the third collaboration between Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos and Irish company Element Pictures.  Starring Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, the film follows the close relationship between Queen Anne (Colman) and Sarah Churchill (Weisz), which is threatened by the arrival of Sarah’s cousin, Abigail Masham (Emma Stone), resulting in a bitter rivalry between the two as they jockey for the position of the Queen’s favourite. Nominated for ten Academy awards, Olivia Colman won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as Queen Anne. Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound were proud to part of the films sound team.
