Toronto 2018

Lineup Pileup

Emma Stone in Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite (2018)

This week, we’re learning just when and where some of the year’s most anticipated films will be seeing their premieres. The Toronto International Film Festival has presented a first round of Gala and Special Presentations today, and tomorrow, Venice will unveil its main lineup.

Let’s begin first, though, with the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s announcement that the new film by Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, The Lobster) will open the fifty-sixth New York Film Festival on September 28. Set in the English court of the early eighteenth century, The Favourite pits the Duchess of Marlborough (Rachel Weisz) against a new servant (Emma Stone) in a battle for the affections of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman).
