12 BAFTA nominations. Forget what you thought you knew about the corset-and-carriage costume drama – director Yorgos Lanthimos rips up the rulebook with The Favourite. In this riotous period comedy, Olivia Colman is outstanding as the frail Queen Anne, while Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone revel in their roles as rival courtiers vying for the monarch’s affections.  Very strong language, strong sex.
