In 18th century England, the close relationship between Queen Anne and Sarah Churchill is threatened by the arrival of Sarah's cousin, Abigail Hill, resulting in a bitter rivalry between the two cousins to be the Queen's favourite.
There was nothing comedic about this movie. It was dark, depressing, disgusting, and a total waste of time and money. It was pretty much a trashy movie billed as art. I fast forwarded past a lot of the scenes that could only be described as pornographic. I am sorry that I was sucked in by some well advertsed reviews by the critics. I won't be watching any more movies by this Producer/Director.
The cast fantastic but the movie was a disappointment. Save your money.
The performances are stellar! The costumes of course are beautiful. The story is loosely based on actual history. Not for prudes, but it’s fantastic!
Waste of 2 hours
I have no clue why this movie won so many awards. Glenn Close was robbed from yet another worthy Lead Actress Oscar win. A totally stupid story line with and even more stupid ending. If your curius as I was about this movie. Don't waste your money or time that you can get back. Unless you have an endless supply of both that you want to waste.
