La Favorite (The Favourite) est un film américano-irlando-britannique réalisé par Yórgos Lánthimos, sorti en 2018.

Synopsis

Début du XVIII siècle. L’Angleterre et la France sont en guerre. Toutefois, à la cour, la mode est aux courses de canards et à la dégustation d’ananas. La reine Anne (Olivia Colman), à la santé fragile et au caractère instable, occupe le trône et joue avec ses 17 lapins, un pour chaque enfant qu'elle a perdu, tandis que son amie Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz), duchesse de Marlborough, gouverne le pays à sa place. Les plans de Sarah pour contrôler Anne sont ébranlés par Robert Harley (Nicholas Hoult), chef de l'opposition, qui, étant propriétaire de terres, est contre le doublement de taxes qui servirait à financer la guerre, au risque d'émeutes dans les campagnes.

A married couple and their three young adult children, a son and two daughters, live in a large compound with a garden and swimming pool. A tall fence surrounds the property and the children have never been on the other side of it, for their parents have kept them unaware of the outside world, even of the existence of the telephone. They are taught different meanings for everyday words. The parents promise that each child will be ready to venture outside the compound once she or he has lost a dogtooth. Although the children are told they have a brother just on the other side of the barrier, he never appears.

The prestigious bridal magazine Confetti, owned by the flippant, breezy Antoni Clarke (Jimmy Carr) and managed by the long-suffering, uptight chief editor Vivienne (Felicity Montagu) is holding a competition to see who can hold the most original wedding, with the winners being presented with a new house and a cover shoot for the magazine. Three couples and their proposals are selected to participate: Sam and Matt (Jessica Stevenson and Martin Freeman), a good-natured couple of old-fashioned romantics who have elected to hold their wedding in the style of Busby Berkeley musicals of the 1930s and 1940s, despite the fact that Sam can barely hold a tune; Isabelle and Josef (Meredith MacNeill and Stephen Mangan), a pair of hyper-competitive professional tennis players holding a tennis-themed wedding; and Joanna and Michael (Olivia Colman and Robert Webb), a naturist couple who intend to hold their wedding entirely naked. All three weddings are planned using the services of Gregory and Archie (Vincent Franklin and Jason Watkins), wedding planners and partners in both business and love.
