The Favourite
Yorgos Yanthimos | Ireland/UK/USA | 2018 | 119m | 15

The FavouriteEarly C18th. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (a superb 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 to return to her aristocratic roots.

"’The Favourite’ is a filthy, violent and outrageous period comedy that drips with bad language and worse behaviour…it’s also strangely touching."

Mug / Twarz
Małgorzata Szumowska | Poland | 2018 | 91m | 15 | Polish with English subtitles

MugCarefree metalhead Jacek is engaged to beautiful Dagmara and working construction on what is supposed to be the world’s tallest statue of Jesus when a shocking accident completely changes his life. Małgorzata Szumowska provides a powerful indictment of provincial Poland’s hypocrisy, prejudice and fear of difference in this tragicomedy, as Jacek’s face transplant brings out the worst in his small-town neighbours.

"Mug is a strange, engaging film– well and potently acted and directed, a drama that puts you inside its extended community with a mix of robust realism and a streak of fantasy comedy" The Guardian.
