I love historic films, and I was ESPECIALLY intrigued by this one because of the rather clear LESBIAN content! The DVD box cover, for example, shows Queen Anne (played by 45-year old Olivia Colman) sitting on a chair with Lady Sarah (49-year old Rachel Weisz) perched on her lap, with pretty Abigail (31-year old Emma Stone) sitting at her feet.

But first, a bit of historical background. "The Favourite" is about the goings-on late in the reign of Queen Anne, the last of the Stuart monarchs of England. When the childless Queen Anne died in 1714, England went shopping for a new King and found one in George I of Hannover (in Germany). But that has nothing to do with this film.

As this one begins, Queen Anne is getting old & fat, and is plagued with the gout. Her closest friend & confidant is Lady Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough (whose husband is a general leading the Queen's armies). Early in the film, a new girl, pretty young Abigail, arrives at the palace, begging employment from Lady Sarah, a distant relative. Sarah puts her to work in the kitchen as a lowly scullery maid.

With the aging queen suffering from painful gout, Abigail finds some plants in the countryside that she turns into a paste, relieving the queen of some of her suffering. As a reward for her efforts, Lady Sarah removes the girl from the kitchen and elevates her into becoming a serving girl for the queen. This is where it begins to get interesting!

One night while Abigail sits alone, quietly reading a book in the queen's huge library, she witnesses Lady Sarah entering the room with the Queen, pushing the sickly monarch in a wheelchair. Not realizing that they're being watched, the queen & Lady Sarah then begin making out. Abigail correctly deduces that these two ladies are in a sexual relationship with one another, and decides to take advantage of this for herself. There's a GREAT SCENE later on where the queen enters her private chambers all alone, only to find pretty Abigail completely nude and in her (the queen's) bed! She awakens the girl, who profusely apologizes, claiming sudden fatigue, and then quickly leaves the room. But sure enough, soon after the queen summons the pretty younger woman BACK into her budoir. And when Lady Sarah then quietly enters the room a couple of hours later, she discovers the Queen & pretty Abigail asleep in bed together - the pretty girl once again completely nude with the queen's arm possessively around her!

No, this (sadly) wasn't an erotic film! But the strong lesbian overtones were there nonetheless! Queen Anne hardly qualifies as a dominant/predatory lesbian, preying upon her pretty young ladies-in-waiting, but HOW AWESOME would it be if she WERE? No, in this film both Lady Sarah & Abigail are only USING the queen's affections to increase their own influences at court, and the two jealously try to rid the other of having any access to Queen Anne whatsoever. Olivia Colman, by the way, just won the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Anne in this film!

I would LOVE to see an erotic lesbian-version of this story, involving a decadent (and less sickly) lesbian queen who keeps a harem of pretty young women around for her kinky pleasures! Emma Stone was quite good in her role, and I ESPECIALLY loved that moment when the queen discovers the pretty girl nude in her bed! Sadly, this wasn't shot as an erotic film, but that scene (and the following one where Lady Sarah unexpectedly discovers the nude younger girl asleep in bed with the queen) were both AMAZINGLY HOT!

I enjoyed the movie. I've been a big fan of Olivia Colman for a while now because of all the British TV shows she's been in.

So for the porn version: Dana Dearmond as Queen Anne, Valentina Nappi as Lady Sarah and Ivy Wolfe as Abigail?

Yes, I like ALL of those! I'm quite certain that Ms. DeArmond would be a PERFECT FIT as Queen Anne, as Dana consistently plays a believable dominant-older-lesbian woman with exactly the right kind of decadent, kinky behavior! Valentina Nappi sounds like a good fit in the role of Lady Sarah, while Ivy Wolfe is the the IDEAL actress to take on the role of pretty-young-&-submissive Abigail! You're a SUPERB casting director, Duggal! Perhaps you should take a job working behind the scenes at one of the many companies selling videos here at LLV!

My only suggestion would be NOT to give this project to Girlfriends Films (they'd ruin it) or allow Stills-by-Alan to write-&-direct it (he's just AWFUL!) This film ("The Favourite") had an excellent erotic "feel" to it and the only way to completely RUIN an erotic video version would be to pass it off to one of the many sub-par directors/production-houses churning-out garbage porn scenes on a regular basis! Somebody out there must be instructing these people how to take erotic storyline idea and then run it into the ground! How else can you explain it?

Being an anglophile who especially loves the sound of a woman's British accent, I very much enjoyed 'The Favourite' as well, Anon.

It was an excellent period piece that gave you a well developed character study of the three major female characters portrayed by Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Emma Stone (the only American in the cast who delivered a very convincing British accent).

The film definitely had intense erotic overtones (even if did not translate into any significant, lasting g/g scenes) with a love triangle emerging between the three protagonists. It really kept you guessing what was going to happen, as the film had a strong unpredictability component to it.

I agree that the conceptual framework of the movie has strong erotic potential in an XXX production. The first name I thought of was Magdalene St. Michaels to play the role of the Queen, with the parts of Lady Sarah and Abigail played by younger actresses.

I, too, would dearly LOVE to have seen Magdalene St. Michaels cast in the role of a predatory/dominant lesbian queen, Lezfriend! That woman is GREAT when paired with pretty younger women (with lovely submissive bodies) for Maggie to play with and enjoy! I can easily imagine Magdalene as Queen Anne, ordering one of her pretty young laidies-in-waiting to come back with her to her bedroom where the girl would then be instructed on entertaining her queen using her hot young body! Either the queen would undress the pretty girl or order the girl to slowly strip for her - either one would be AWESOME!

I was pleased that Olivia Colman won an Academy Award for her role as Queen Anne, despite the fact that this film really WASN'T so much about lesbian sex as it was about the power-struggles involved in getting the monarch to side with your political faction, which is what both Lady Sarah & pretty Abigail wanted primarily for themselves. The queen played a suffering old woman used by others to strengthen their respective situations, which was nonetheless fun to imagine pretty younger women offering themselves for her pleasure (although actress Rachel Weisz is actually OLDER than actress Olivia Colman!)

I was kind of hoping to see the more naturally-dominant Lady Sarah (Weisz) eventually seducing, or at least engaging in sub/dom lesbian sex with, pretty blonde Abigail (Emma Stone) - although you realize that in this film NEITHER woman was actually all that interested in other girls, and were only doing what they did basically to acquire & hold the queen's attention. Still, if Lady Sarah had ever gotten pretty Abigail alone & naked I imagine that what followed would almost certainly have been incredibly HOT!
