“Favor is a breeze that shifts direction all the time. Then in an instant you’re back listening to scabrous podcasts.” This week Cynthia Li, Sabrina Pearson, and Ivy Pottinger-Glass sit down to discuss Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest film: The Favourite. Set in the early 18th century, this dark comedy period piece follows the real life events of Queen Anne as her long time friend and a servant compete for her favor. We discuss the film’s use of classic Lanthimos humor, its unique visual style, and what the film’s award potential may be on this week’s episode so drop a listen now!
On this week’s episode: Cynthia Li, Sabrina Pearson, Ivy Pottinger-Glass, and Greg Arietta.
