Welcome to Episode 65 of We Watched A Thing.
Join us as we head back to the royal court, fight for the favour of the queen, and pelt tomatoes at jolly nude men, all while discussing the brand new period piece ‘The Favourite’.
The Favourite is a 2018 historical period comedy-drama film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara. It is a co-production of Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The story focuses on the behind-the-scenes politics between two cousins jockeying to be court favourites during the reign of Queen Anne in the early 18th century. It stars Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, and Mark Gatiss.
