Rolling Stone

Lanthimos' renegade deviltry turns a period piece into a bawdy, brilliant triumph. Expect Oscar to bow down to Stone, Weisz and the mighty Colman.

Read review Peter Travers
The Guardian

Colman excels herself (...) It is a scabrous and often hilarious film (...) Olivia Colman's queen is a really funny creation.

Roger Ebert

It is simply awe-inspiring in the way it harbors serious themes and anxieties about womanhood underneath a deceptively feather-light surface.

Read review Tomris Laffly

Savagely witty and stylish (...) A finely executed, coldly entertaining entry in the genre.

Read review Owen Gleiberman

The humor is sharp and dry and sometimes bawdy, though there are moments of surprising tenderness too (...) Lanthimos shapes this fascinating material beautifully.

Read review Stephanie Zacharek
The New Yorker

Lanthimos is not one of nature's cheerleader (...) and yet, from the mean and grasping shenanigans that pass for a plot, there rises an unmistakable whiff of?believe it or not?fun.

Read review Anthony Lane
The A.V. Club

A sharp-tongued costume drama with a delirious, disorienting edge (...) Is this the first Yorgos Lanthimos that can be called genuinely fun?

The Telegraph

This is a skewer-sharp and scabrously funny film, stuffed with quotable deadpan exchanges.

Read review Robbie Collin
USA Today

An abundantly entertaining gem for those allergic to fussier looks at history, wrapping royal ambitions and a war of manners in high-end farcical comedy.

Read review Brian Truitt
The Hollywood Reporter

A wicked delight (...) In addition to its sumptuous visuals and delicate wit, this must-see Fox Searchlight release offers a balanced triumvirate of formidable female leads.

Read review David Rooney

Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are a majestic triumvirate in a period piece that's as tragic as it is hilarious.

Read review Michael Nordine
New York Times

A wildly entertaining, bracingly cynical comedy (...) A farce with teeth, a costume drama with sharp political instincts and an aggressive sense of the absurd.

Screen Daily

The energy generated by three talents at the top of their game and the energy generated by their characters swirl and merge in a perfect storm.

The Wrap

Part of what makes 'The Favourite' such nasty fun is that it's never clear who's going to come out on top.
