Oscar nom at the Callicoon Theater
CALLICOON, NY — The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) and The Callicoon Theater will screen the Oscar-nominated film “The Favourite” as part of the 2019 winter film series CineArt from February 8 to 14.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz), governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. Ex-aristocrat Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives and humbly accepts a position as a servant while courting her own agenda to restore her glory days. As the politics of war become time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the queen’s companion.
“The Favourite” is rated R and will screen nightly, Thursday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
