Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her burgeoning friendship with the Queen threatens to upset the status quo in court.
