Poor Things

Cinema

Poor Things is a 2023 film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara.

Starring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Christopher Abbott, and Jerrod Carmichael. Based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, the plot focuses on Bella Baxter, a young woman living in steampunk-styled Victorian era London who, after being crudely resurrected by a scientist following her suicide, runs off with a debauched lawyer to embark on an odyssey of self-discovery and sexual liberation.

Poor Things has received numerous accolades. At the Golden Globe Awards, it won Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Stone, and received eleven British Academy Film Award nominations, including Best Film.

Poor Things is "Lanthimos' finest movie so far, a strange, gorgeous-looking picture that extends generosity both to its characters and the audience" - Stephanie Zacharek of Time

"An insanely enjoyable fairy tale", adding that Stone "gorges on it in a fearless performance that traces an expansive arc most actors could only dream about". - David Rooney of The Hollywod
