‘The Favourite’ to open Friday at The Tull Family Theater

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 | 11:10 AM


“The Favourite,” a favorite this awards season, offers an intriguing look at the time of Queen Anne as the leader of a new entity called Great Britain. The film opens on Friday at The Tull Family Theater, 418 Walnut St., Sewickley.

Olivia Colman, who already has won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the Queen, shares, “I loved that she had every emotion under the sun every five minutes. That’s an actor’s dream. She’s spoiled, grieving, sensitive and cruel.”

Co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone play cousins who vie for the Queen’s attention and favor — and also were Golden Globe nominees.

The film and the three actresses are competing for 12 BAFTA recognitions and multiple Screen Actors Guild awards.  The film opens Friday, with showings at 12:15, 3:00, 5:45 and 8:30 p.m., and plays at the same time on Saturday.
