I think it's safe to say, most people have heard something about this one. The Award-winning film starring Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz & Emma Stone is hitting Screen25 with some 18th Century force.

Dates and Times: Fri 17 & Wed 22 May 19:45.

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (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 Sarah’s cousin Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives at the Palace, her charm soon wins the Queen’s attentions. With stakes of the heart high, the two women soon become rivals for the Queen’s affections in a wickedly funny game of one-up-womanship.
