The Favourite

The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 89 with Heather Rose Jones

A review of the movie The Favourite, about the rivalry between Sarah Duchess of Marlborough and Abigail Masham for the favor and affections of Anne, Queen of England.

I’m joined in this show by Farah Mendlesohn, historian and both author and publisher of queer historical fiction, and by Trystan Bass, co-founder and editor in chief of the Frock Flicks blog and podcast. We talk about everything from the necessary historical inaccuracies of film making, to the use of costume and setting in conveying the film’s themes, to how much we loved both the story and the performances in this movie.

A partial transcript of this podcast is available here. The non-scripted portions are pending transcription.
