Yorgos Lanthimos | 2018 | Ireland/UK/USA | 121 minutes
From the man who previously brought you The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, there is now something dark and funny for your enjoyment. The Duchess of Marlborough is engaged in a sexually-charged relationship with her servant, Abigail, where they are arguing over the Queen Anne during the War of Spanish Succession. The lush atmosphere of the English court adds to the hilarity of the plot, led by a phenomenal cast of Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman, and others.
