She finds Lady Churchill a distant cousin cold and harsh but ultimately willing to make her a lady in waiting. Cinematographer Robbie Ryan zig-zags seamlessly through common camera work to odd and uneasy angels to wide-lens fishbowl framing like a funhouse mirror. The score is Bach with a beat that sounds like night terrors closing in.
