    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 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 fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

    This looks to be the main push from Fox Searchlight since it has the latest release date. The Old Man & the Gun and Can You Ever Forgive Me? are scheduled for an October release.

    Sounds like Stone is getting the meatier role out of the three cast. She’s coming for her third Oscar nomination!

    And I’m ecstatic that Lanthimos is FINALLY getting a real chance at making a dent at the Oscars.

    Hoping this secures Cole her first and Weisz her second Oscar nods.

    I’ve found Yorgos’ last 2 films Lobster and Sacred Deer well-directed but lacking in regards to their scripts, so I am relieved that he will not be involved as a writer of this film. Looking forward to Stone’s 3rd Oscar nod if she’s able to deliver the goods like she usually does.

    This sounds like it’s going to be either really good or just kinda there.

    The director is too much of a weirdo for him to go banal on us now.
