'The Favourite' Will Open the New York Film Festival


  • The Favourite will be the opening night film for this year's New York Film Festival.

  • The film was directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) and stars Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone.

  • Plot summary: In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne (Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Weisz) governs the country in her stead. When a new servant Abigail (Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

  • It's scheduled for release on November 23rd.

  • Joins Alfonso Cuaron's Roma, which was previously announced as the Centerpiece film of the NYFF.

  • NYFF Opening Night films have a spotty history of critical and financial success; there have been duds like Last Flag Flying and The Walk, and critical hits like Mystic River and The Social Network.
