Based on the Kafka-esque 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray and reimagined by the wildly inventive Yorgos Lanthimos, Poor Things is the saga of Bella Baxter (Emma Stone), a  young woman living in a Steampunk version of Victorian London. After killing herself and being crudely resurrected by scientist Dr. Godwin “God” Baxter (Willem Dafoe), she runs off with a debauched lawyer (Mark Ruffalo) on an odyssey of self-discovery and sexual liberation. Gothic, raunchy and delightfully weird, it plays as if Mary Shelley, on acid, wrote a feminist bildungsroman/sex comedy. Stone won a Golden Globe for her performance and just picked up an Oscar nomination, one of  11 for the film, including Best Picture and Best Director. Stone is thrilling to watch as Bella matures, though Ruffalo (nominated for Best Supporting Actor) and Dafoe sometime steal the show.

Poor Things is smart and bonkers in all the right ways. This is why it is, arguably, the best film of the year.” — Stanley M. Kramer, Salon.com
“Through it all, Bella claims center stage; and whether she’s acting as an innocent or a sophisticate, Stone has no problem anchoring the chaos.” — Natalia Winkelman, The Boston Globe
