Just because you're thrust into the position of ruling as King or Queen doesn't mean you're cut out for it. Olivia Colman is Queen Anne, whose existence is plagued by chronic illnesses and constant unhappiness. Ms. Colman is simply magnificent, as she embodies the pitiful woe-is-me, emotionally out-of-control, petulant childish Queen with her every manner. She's taken by the celebration of the festivities of dancing at a ball until she envies those who can dance, and get around better than her. Her life is a roller-coaster of feelings, emotions, and manipulations. Rachel Weisz keeps her in check and knows her inside out, but soon Rachel's place by her side is threatened by Emma Stone.Who will ultimately be Queen Anne's Favourite? The film and all actors are excellent, but Olivia Colman rightfully steals the show and you think about her even when she's not in the scene. Ms. Colman deserved the Oscar. Sorry, Glenn! This is not a satire or a comedy. It is dark in tone. This is serious. This was life for some who didn't ask for it. Discover it today.
