In 18th century England, the friendship between the failing Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) and her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) who governs state matters in her stead, is stirred by the arrival of ambitious servant Abigail Masham (Emma Stone). Taken in by Sarah at first because of her charm, Abigail slowly endears herself to the Queen, at Sarah's expense. Bitter resentment ensues, culminating in a behind-the-scenes rivalry between Abigail and Sarah as to who will become the Queen's court favorite. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.
