Forget what you thought you knew about the corset-and carriage costume drama.
Fizzing with dark humour, pathos and life, this riotous period comedy is powered by a trio of superb performances from Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone. Colman is outstanding as the frail Queen Anne, while Weisz and Stone revel in their roles as rival courtiers vying for the monarch’s affections.
