“THE FAVOURITE”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

One of the big play­ers in the lat­est film-award sea­son, this royal tale earned 10 Os­car nom­i­na­tions in­clud­ing best pic­ture, ac­tress (Olivia Col­man, who won that statue) and sup­port­ing ac­tress (both Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone). Col­man plays Queen Anne, whose poor health and un­pre­dictable tem­per­a­ment prompt the cov­er­age of her na­tional du­ties by Lady Sarah (Weisz), who also su­per­vises a new ser­vant (Stone). The lat­ter two women then vie for the queen’s fa­vor, a com­pe­ti­tion that could have far-reach­ing con­se­quences for all of Eng­land. Ni­cholas Hoult, Joe Al­wyn and Mark Gatiss also star ... but as all the award bids have con­firmed, this re­ally is the ladies’ pic­ture DVD ex­tras: “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­tary; deleted scenes. (R: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
