‘Duck racing, pomegranate throwing at a naked (except for a pink wig) fleshy fop’
Early 18th century England is at war with France while a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah ( Rachel Weisz) governs the country while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. A new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives and her charm endears her to Anne. As the politics of war consume Sarah’s time, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion.
