Lady Sarah: "Anne, you are too sensitive.
Queen Anne: And you are too mean and uncaring, some days.
Lady Sarah: Some days I'm quite lovely though. Let's think on them!"
Culture Østerbro Network invites you to join us at Østerbro Bibliotek for a screening of an international film with English subtitles.
This time we are going to watch a drama from 2018, that was nominated for 9 Oscars and won the oscar and the golden globe for best actor. Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz headline the cast.
About the movie:
Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
