In anticipation of his upcoming retrospective (February 1-5), Yorgos Lanthimos will join the Film Society of Lincoln Center for a special onstage conversation spanning his influences and career to date, followed by a screening of the director’s latest film, The Favourite.

___________

The Favourite Ireland/UK/USA, 2018, 121m In Lanthimos’s wildly intricate and very darkly funny new film, Sarah Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz), and her servant Abigail Hill (Emma Stone) engage in a sexually charged fight to the death for the body and soul of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) at the height of the War of the Spanish Succession. This trio of truly brilliant performances is the dynamo that powers Lanthimos’s top-to-bottom reimagining of the costume epic, in which the visual pageantry of court life in 18th-century England becomes not just a lushly appointed backdrop but an ironically heightened counterpoint to the primal conflict unreeling behind closed doors. An NYFF56 selection. A Fox Searchlight Pictures release.
