In early 18th century England, Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country while tending to a frail and ill-tempered Queen Anne (Olivia Colman). When a servant named Abagail (Emma Stone) arrives, she is taken under Sarah's wing and steps up to fill in as the Queen's companion.

The film's cast and crew was assembled in September 2015, but production didn't begin until March 2017 in England. The Favourite had its world premiere at the 2018 Venice International Film Festival in late August.
