The Favourite is a very different period drama
We’ve seen Emma Stone play crazy roles on screen before, but this time she’s gone royally mad in her upcoming film, The Favourite.
As reported by People.com, Fox Searchlight released the movie’s first trailer, with Stone catching our attention in the first 15 seconds as she literally falls flat on her face into a royal rivalry.
The highly anticipated indie film tells the story of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) and her advisor Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) while England is at war with France. However, the Queen takes more of an interest in loudly shouting and duck racing.
While Lady Sarah is busy strategizing, in comes new servant Abigail (Stone) who becomes quite the royal pain. Stone’s character hatches a diabolic plan to become the Queen’s new trusted companioned and ‘favourite.’
