THE FAVOURITE starts Friday at YES!
Sumptuous and stunning. With THE FAVOURITE, director Yorgos Lanthimos delivers his best film yet - one that works as both a historical drama and a sex comedy that features beautiful cinematography courtesy of Robbie Ryan and gorgeous costume design courtesy of Sandy Powell (just give her the Oscar already). Lanthimos, working for the first time with a screenplay that he didn't co-write, deals primarily with themes of power and the way it impacts the three women at the center of the film. Lanthimos seems to be in his wheelhouse, crafting a stirring yet (darkly) humorous rumination on humankind's innate desire to posses power, whether it be political, sexual, or anything in between.
Granted, Lanthimos is also working with some of the most talented actresses working today and the big three (Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone) all deliver some of the best work of their career. Despite Colman's Best Actress win at Venice for her portrayal of Queen Anne, this is Stone's film - the film wholly follows her arc. That's not to take anything from Colman, whose performance is likely the most impressive of the three. - roblesar99 (online review)
Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity and language.
GREEN BOOK now playing Exclusively at YES!
When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. Golden Globe Winner.
"GREEN BOOK is a truly delightful dramedy that should be on everyone's list of films to see before the Oscars." - The Kaplan Report
