Product Description

It's the early 18th century and England is at war with France. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman in her Academy-award winning performance) 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. But Lady Sarah is more than just the Queen's closest friend, she is also her secret lover!

When Lady Sarah's distant cousin Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives at court to work as a servant, having fallen in fortunes, Sarah takes Abigail under her wing. Smart and resourceful, Abigail sees a chance at elevating herself, and starts to make herself indispensable to the Queen as both confidant and lover. And so begins the rivalry between Sarah and Abigail which will be as much about personal survival as the fate of England.  

Based on real characters and historical events, but with a fresh and iconoclastic approach from director Yorgos Lanthimos (who directed The Lobster), this is a wickedly funny, astute and affecting examination of the pursuit of power and influence, and the price that must be paid for it. With razor-sharp wit and cracking performances from the three central cast members (all nominated for Academy awards), this is a sexy, hilarious and moving film with a lesbian sex / love triangle at its heart.
