In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
When designing for the character of Lady Sarah Churchill, Sandy Powell used Katharine Hepburn as a reference point.
Anne, you are too sensitive.
Queen Anne: And you are too mean and uncaring, some days.
Lady Sarah: Some days I'm quite lovely though. Let's think on them!
Emma Stone's freckles come and go. In the period depicted, an upper-class woman wouldn't spend enough time in the sun to acquire freckles. However, it was clear from the plot that Abigail had fallen on hard times prior to attending court; having to work as a domestic servant strongly suggests that she might well have been exposed to the sun, contrary to her new-found standing among the upper class.
