Love them or hate them – they tend to cause strong reactions – The Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’s film has always shown resistance to arrogance and resistance to easy classification.

Lanthimos’ breakthrough in 2009, “Dog’s Teeth”, won an Oscar-nominated foreign language, is a dark portrait, a family takes family education to a strange extreme. The 2011 “Lobster” is a dystopian comedy where a single person can find a romantic partner within 45 days to avoid becoming an animal.

This film is centered on the court of the 18th century Queen Anne (Olivia Coleman) and is increasingly vicious and sexually active between the two scheming cousins ​​of Rachel Wiss and Emma Stone. Power struggles are centered as they compete for the favor of the Queen of mood swings. Oscar forecasters have predicted that all three actresses will participate as the award season begins.

On the morning after the film’s first screening in Telluride, The Times interviewed Lanthimos and Stone about the tradition of subverting the age drama, the joy of wearing a corset, and why you shouldn’t hold Lanthimos to make a superhero movie.

You usually watch a costume drama that looks like a movie, and usually doesn’t include slow-motion duck games or scenes shot through fisheye lenses or dirty language. Part of the appeal of this movie, can you take this sometimes stuffy type and open it?

Lanthimos: At first I was only interested in this story, but apart from that, this is a period movie and I have not made a part of it. I think it would be interesting to try to do something a bit like this type of distortion. What will happen. This is definitely part of it.

Stone: I just like this script, I like it is a unique version of the 1705 story collection. [To Lanthimos] Is it 1705? I have always said this.

Lanthimos: Somewhere. Don’t be specific.

Stone: But I like to be specific.

Lanthimos: Yes, but we don’t like this movie. We have taken a lot of freedom in this story.

Stone: [simulated horror] What do we have? Oh no! I told everyone that this is actually accurate in history! This will be the movie they will show in history class!

Emma, ​​what are your expectations for Yorgos’ work after seeing his early films?

Stone: Well, I think I saw “Dogtooth” before meeting him, but if I remember correctly, I saw “lobster”. So when I sat down with him, I thought he would become a mentally ill person. [Laughs] I thought, “Oh my God, this will be terrible.”

Then we sat down, he was so normal and sweet, which was very confusing for me. I just want to see what it will look like. It is a combination of the two: sweet and scary. In short, this is you.
