Poor Things (2023)

2h 21m / R / Sci-Fi, Romantic Comedy

Brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox Dr. Godwin Baxter, young Bella Baxter runs off with debauched lawyer Duncan Wedderburn on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Eager to learn and free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.

Wildly imaginative and exhilaratingly over the top, Poor Things is a bizarre, brilliant tour de force for director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, The Lobster), and recently earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Director – Motion Picture. It stars Emma Stone as the luminous Bella, Mark Ruffalo as her traveling companion, and Willem Dafoe as Dr. Baxter (who also received a nomination for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role), and picked up additional nominations for Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
