Our preview audiences adored “wildly entertaining” The Favourite
Steve NewallFeatures | 13 December 18
A few nights ago three cinemas of lucky Flicks prizewinners got to enjoy deliciously black period comedy-drama The Favourite (opening December 26th but with some sneak screenings this weekend).
Fresh from winning a record 10 British Independent Film Awards and scoring Golden Globe nominations for all three leads (Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz), the film’s a late highlight of 2018, and is the latest from Yorgo Lanthimos, Oscar-nominated director of The Lobster.
But hey, don’t just take our word for it—see some of the feedback from actual human beings who attended the previews (19 of whom have rated or reviewed the film on Flicks for an average of 4 stars).

The film in 8 words: “Loss, hope and love in rural New Zealand.”
Stuber is the latest in a long line of buddy comedies, revolving around mismatched partners forced to overcome their differences.
Also includes Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
We come to terms with one hell of a show.
“Each year, our job gets tougher as the quality of the films rises.”
