A gripping historical black comedy with powerhouse performances!

Yorgos Lanthimos' most acclaimed film, and for great reason! A true comedy-drama, giving the best of both sides. A look within the walls of Queen Anne in 18th century Britain, as two women compete for her favor for their own personal, political, and romantic purposes. Olivia Colman took home an Oscar for her performance as Queen Anne, and her co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone garnered well-deserved nominations as well. Co-leader in Oscar nominations in 2019, with 10 all around. Clever as a whip, dark and brooding, and served with a wink.
