3SMReviews: The Favourite
This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement for more information.
Yorgos Lanthimos gives us the Christmas gift of three amazing actors in The Favourite and I enjoyed every moment of the characters’ slow-motion train wrecks. Aside from great acting and an intense story, there are amazing costumes* and a scene so good that it caused people in my screening to break into applause. Despite its drawing room appearance, this movie changes things up (like a traditional formal dance at a ball that morphs into all sorts of current dance moves) and is contemporary in every way.
Where watched: Hollywood Theatre with friend Kelly.
*The women look good in their gowns, but Nicholas Hoult really dazzles in his fancy dress and powdered face and wig.
