THE FAVOURITE is a period drama in which a servant and a courtier vie for the affections of their monarch, Queen Anne.

Language

There is very strong language ('c**t'), as well as strong language ('f**k') and milder terms such as 'bitch'.

Sex

There are a number of sex scenes, and some accompanying sexualised breast and buttock nudity. In one scene, a woman masturbates a man to climax and wipes her hand on a sheet.

There are some moments of mild violence, including face slaps and a man shoving a woman into a ditch. A woman injures herself by hitting herself in the face with a heavy book. In another scene, a woman briefly pins a rabbit to the floor with her foot before releasing it, unharmed. There are also scenes in which birds are shot and killed.
