Synopsis

Greek provocateur Yorgos Lanthimos once again triggers schemed manipulations, boundaries of loyalty, immoral thirst for power, traitorous vengeance in his filthiest and funniest courtroom comedy, infused by tour-de-force majestic performances, sexual intrigues, blackly absurd humour and classical music. At the dawn of 18th century almost all men of England are busy killing each other in the War of the Spanish Succession. Strangely ill Queen Anne (Best Actress of Venice IFF Olivia Colman) is bored in bed of luxurious palace. She ridiculously admires 17 cute bunnies and always attends extravagant lusty competitions, but gives away more important duties to trusty friend Sarah (Rachel Weisz)…
