From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.

“Like last year’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” I feel comfortable calling this a lock for Oscar nominations across the board.” ~ Jordan Hoffman, The Messenger

“As imaginative as the film’s comedy can be, its greatest asset is Emma Stone’s ability to situate Bella Baster first as jester, then as the emotional foundation upon which the whole of Poor Things is built.” ~ Kyle Turner, Slant Magazine
