Poly Parents // The Favourite

POLY PARENTS: We believe that mums and dads shouldn't have to miss out on great cinema, which is why we are now offering special daytime screenings just for them. Bring your under 3 for free and we'll create a friendly, half-lit and low sound atmosphere to keep them calm while you enjoy the film.

Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) returns with his latest absurdly entertaining farce - a darkly funny court comedy starring Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as rivals vying for the affection of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman).

It's the early 18th century, England is at war with France and Queen Anne's (Colman in the performance of her career) poor health finds her relying on her doting friend Lady Sarah (Weisz). When Abigail (Stone) arrives at the palace, her charm soon wins Anne's attention and Sarah and Abigail become fierce rivals for for the Queen's affections in a wickedly funny game of one-up-womanship.

Filthy and outrageous - expect racing ducks and lobsters, 17 pet bunnies, and great silly dancing in extravagant parties - a conventional royal drama this is not. Grounded in a trio of fabulous performances by its leading ladies, with the men in supporting roles only (Nicholas Hoult and Mark Gatiss are preening, air-headed fops), The Favourite is a film where women rule - what a delight to spend 120 minutes in their company.

Tickets: £7.75 (inc. Poly Fund)

Please note: the screening at 10:30 is the PARENT & BABY showing. There are no concessions available for this screening.
