The Favourite Could Be Your New Period Drama Favourite

The Favourite is one of the most talked about period drama that made it to the screen with one hell of a star cast. The film is set in the 18th century English court at the time of Queen Anne’s rule. It is a poetic rendition of the power struggles, palace intrigues and romance that brewed in the halls of the royal court.

That being said, the women in the film make for the most delightful watch with Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz taking the lead.

Colette is based on the life of the French novelist of the titular name with Knightlely playing the lead. The film is set in the 19th century Paris and treads beautifully through the French scene of the era. The costumes, the lighting and everything about the film scream elegance which makes it for a beautiful watch.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott has been adapted on the screen a few times, but nothing makes for a better watch than the 2019 version directed by Greta Gerwig. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen as the four sisters who play the lead characters from the novel.
