A quirky period comedy from the director of The Lobster, staring Olivia Colman (in what looks to be a career-best performance) as a frail Queen Anne opposite Rachel Weisz’s close friend Lady Sarah, who must put up with the Queen’s mercurial temper while governing the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail (Emma Stone), arrives, Lady Sarah takes her under her wing, and Abigail sees a chance to return to her aristocratic roots.
