The Favourite with Historical Discussion

  • Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar 1120 S Lamar Blvd Austin, Tx 78704 (map)

Join Alamos Drafthouse after the screening for a special Q&A featuring University of Texas History Professor James M. Vaughn who will discuss the historical context and realities of THE FAVOURITE.

About the Film: Plagued by grief and gout, Queen Anne (Olivia Colman, British television MVP), doesn't have many friends. The lucky few who she does favor can find themselves with wealth, power and influence. Her favourite? The strong and fiercely intelligent Sarah Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, one of the most powerful people in the country and Anne's intimate friend for many years. But when Sarah's down-on-her-luck cousin Abigail (Emma Stone) finds work in the Queen's court, it throws her carefully-crafted world into disarray. So begins a war for the royal favor.
