If you missed out on The Favourite in theaters, or simply wish to re-watch the Oscar darling from the comfort of your home, you’ll get the chance soon enough. 20th Century Fox has announced the movie will arrive digitally on February 12th with the physical blu-ray landing on March 5th:
In early 18th-century England, a frail Queen Anne (Golden Globe® Winner Oliva Colman) occupies the throne, and her closest Friend, Lady Sarah (Academy Award® Winner Rachel Weisz), governs the country while tending to Anne’s ill health and volatile temper. When new servant Abigail (Academy Award® Winner Emma Stone) arrives, Sarah takes Abigail under her wing as she cunningly schemes to return to her aristocratic roots, setting off an outrageous rivalry to become the Queen’s favourite.
The Favourite has been one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year. It has received numerous awards including The Venice Film Festivals’ Grand Special Jury Prize for Director Yorgos Lanthimos, 10 wins at the British Independent Film Awards, selected as AFI’s 2018 Movie of the Year and a Golden Globe® for Olivia Colman’s performance as Queen Anne. The film has also nabbed 10 Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay.
