The new film from Yorgos Lanthimos, a very loose take on English history about a "love triangle" between the aging and mad Queen Anne (Olivia Colman), the imperious Duchess Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz), and ambitious servant Abigail Masham (Emma Stone). 

This is (a) going to rule and (b) potentially be Lanthimos' breakthrough into the big awards. Colman, at least, looks damn good for a nod.
No more Lanthimos for me, sorry!
yeah, Lanthimos is pretty ehhh for me but he might be a good fit for this subject matter. also, the performances seem less affected than most of his stuff and the affectations that are there seem to fit the context/characters. I can be down for a modern Barry Lyndon with some insane royalty.
