Yorgos Lanthimos is a director known for his chilly and thoroughly weird films like The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. This time around he takes on a period piece about Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) in the early 18th century and the two women competing for her attention, affection, and court standing, Sarah (Rachel Weisz) and newcomer Abagail (Emma Stone) who is throwing off Sarah’s whole game. Things turn ugly between the two and the sickly Queen may or may not be having a ball with the whole thing. It’s not your usual Lanthimos fare, to be sure, but it certainly doesn’t feel like any other period piece film you’ve seen. Listen to Chris, Marco, Frank, and Alan give their review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
