Poor Things 400x400 1
Receiving a warmer and warmer embrace from critics, audiences, and award shows alike, Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, The Lobster) amps the fantasy volume up on his latest, which recently received 11 Oscar nominations on top of its Golden Lion from Venice. Adapted from Alasdair Gray's 1992 novel, Poor Things follows Bella (Emma Stone), who is resurrected after a suicide with a blank slate. Absconding with a depraved lawyer (Mark Ruffalo), Bella relearns the ways of the world through self-discoveries and liberations.
