    It’s like a full length of The Seashell and the Clergyman (Dulac) and I love that.

    I really loved this film. Something about Rachel Weiss in it is just so powerful. Of course the whole main cast is incredible, but for me it is her character who carries the narrative. Queen Anne was manipulated mercilessly by her, but she was also a manipulator herself, just a less calculated one. Emma Stone’s (at first fairly relatable and ordinary) character, Abigail, brings the viewer into the extreme and decadent, yet sickly and troubled life of the bourgeoise royalty…
