Academy Award-winning actors Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are teaming up for the new historical drama, "The Favourite." The movie is set in the 18th century when Queen Anne ruled England. It tells the story of the rivalry between Lady Sarah Churchill and Abigail Masham as they fight for the queen's affection. Weisz and Stone join "CBS This Morning" to discuss what drew them to the roles and why their characters' battle for the queen's attention has much larger implications.
