The Favourite

Yorgos Lanthimos Regno Unito, 2018

Zachary T.'s rating of the film La favorita

The Golden Globes have done precious little this year to move away from their reputation as the 5.9% PBR of awards season, but they got one thing right — nominating all three of Yorgos’ fiery leads. They, (with help from a brillaint screenplay) juggle sensitivity and cruel wit against a backdrop of anachronisms and strangeness that upends genre conventions in thoughtful — and hilarious — ways.
