D: Yorgos Lanthimos (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Lobster, Alps, Dogtooth, Kinetta).
S: Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, Mark Gatiss.
What a period comedy! Wit pours from every pore. Sublime and masterfully crafted. The film includes an emotional kick, among the laugh-out-loud courtly games of influence and ambition.
