Is this going to be released in the US?


Because Queen Anne's story could be very, very interesting.

And Colman and Weisz are always so very, very good!

I just saw it in Boston last night. It’s incredible.

I liked it. I was definitely surprised that it ended there, but when I thought about Emma Stone’s face afterwards (which was burned into my memory because of the length of the shot combined with intensity of the moment) I realized she was feeling regret and even more so a sense of disappointment. I think she liked playing what to her was a game with Rachel Weisz, but having won, she saw there was nothing new or exciting on the horizon. Unlike Rachel Weisz, she didn’t actually care about the queen, and now she’s stuck with her.

Exactly. The Queen always wins and the rest of us are just rabbits. Very good.

Is there any historical evidence of the "close" relationship between the Queen and Lady Marlborough (Winston Churchill's great great great etc relative I guess.

I need to research this. I’ve been meaning to. If you find out before I do, please let me know.

Short answer: yes and no. There is no definitive proof of anything physical ever having happened, but they were very close.

I should also add that while Colman and Weisz are incredible, it was Emma Stone who blew me away most. This is by far her career best performance. She’s reached a new depth I’d never seen in her. It’s her performance (and the costumes and set) that I can’t stop thinking about.
