Check out this official plot synopsis of The Favourite, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Yorgos Lanthimos based on a script by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara and starring Emma Stone, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Mark Gatiss, Joe Alwyn, and Nicholas Hoult:
“Yorgos Lanthimos’s bawdy, acerbic tale of royal intrigue, passion, envy and betrayal in the court of Queen Anne in early 18th century England.
At the center of the story is the Queen herself (Olivia Colman), whose relationship with her confidante, adviser and clandestine lover Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) is turned upside down by the arrival of the Duchess’s younger cousin Abigail (Emma Stone). Soon the balance of power shifts between the women as they jockey for influence with the Queen and the court.”

The film has yet to get an official release date, sometime in 2018.
