Poor Things

September 16, 2023

The incredible tale about the fantastical evolution of a young woman (Emma Stone) brought back to life by a brilliant and unorthodox scientist (Willem Dafoe).

Director Yorgos Lanthimos reunites with The Favourite star Emma Stone for this funny, furious, proudly feminist take on the Frankenstein story, in which a young woman named Bella is raised from the dead by a Victorian-era scientist (Willem Dafoe). Her brain is the equivalent of an infant's, which means she must relearn language, motor skills and manners. Then a mustachioed cad (Mark Ruffalo) educates this neo-naïf in the ways of carnal knowledge, at which point Bella discovers the joys of sex, the hypocritical sexism of 19th-century polite society and, eventually, how to liberate herself from the shackles of the past and the present. Both a sharp, witty throwback to the pilgrim's-progress satires of yesteryear and a scathing revision of the Prometheus myth, Poor Things features a no-holds-barred performance from Stone as a woman who goes from victim to avenging angel.
