“The Favourite” quotes(2018)
Plot – It’s the early 18th century, and England is at war with France. Nevertheless, duck races and pineapples are all the rage. The weak Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) has the throne, while it’s her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill the one who manages the country on her behalf, as well as taking care of the ill Queen. At one point the charming Abigail Masham arrives at court, becoming well-loved by Sarah, who will take her to heart. For Abigail, this is the opportunity to reconnect with her aristocratic roots. As the war affairs take up more and more of Sarah’s time and attention, Abigail manages to take her place with Queen Anne, becoming her confidant. Thanks to the close friendship she will build with Queen Anne, Abigail will manage to follow her own ambitions and won’t allow anyone and anything to get in her way.
