Critic Reviews for The Favourite
What makes The Favourite work are its women -- who rule, both literally within the movie and outwardly, dominating our enjoyment.
Olivia Colman is simply dazzling as a fragile, volatile and sometimes dotty Queen Anne in "The Favourite," a zestful period piece directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.
I suspect that some scholars on the Royals will take issue ... But Colman's performance is so volcanically great, they may shrug and find themselves giving in to the daffy, fiery vulnerability of her portrayal.
All three members of the main trio are at their best, but it's Colman who most deserves a coronation.
Whatever really happened, this reimagining sets a broad, generous stage for three characters who will do anything to get their way, and the actors who portray them are clearly having a terrific time.
