        Storyline

        Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

        No one to root for!
        30 November 2018 | by sillysillymarymSee all my reviews

        Interesting thing about this movie, is that there was no likable character at all. That would normally irritate me as I crave a purpose or something to relate to. It's impressive to have felt such a general disappointment in the nature of humanity (honestly shown as cruel, stubborn, helpless, and self-seeking), and still be very drawn in to the dynamics between these people, and some very unexpected moments. It was quirky and witty. Perhaps the most likable person was the dude Abigail marries (such a small part I can't even remember his name in movie)! He was cute and charming, poor guy. Despite having no character to "root" for or connect with (unless you take an exestential journey into the good and bad in all of us and question just how far you would go to get what you think you want out of life...), it was very entertaining, emotional, and captivating. It was clear early on, there is no real winner in this story, however it ends. And the final scene creates a monument to that effect. I really wanted Abigail to be sweet and innocent and her "goodness" to prevail, as a fairy tale... but actually the way it was is exactly right. I loved Sarah's line to Abigail saying something like "you really think you won? We are playing different games" (or something I know that's off). I just want to give that fickle queen some prozac and a hug!! Also, some great glimpses into royalty, higher class, decision making in war (influences), etc...
