OSCAR WINNER - Best Actress (Olivia Colman)
Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving.
A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots.
As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
Nominated for 10 x Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director (Yorgos Lanthimos), and Best Supporting Actress (Rachel Weisz & Emma Stone).
