Poor Things

Eleven Oscar Nominations including Best Picture!

From filmmaker multi-award-winning director Yorgos Lanthimos and Academy Award winning actor/ 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. Wildly imaginative and exhilaratingly over the top, Poor Things is a bizarre, brilliant tour de force.  Other featured actors include Christopher Abbott, Jerrod Carmichael, and Ramy Youssef.(R, 2h 21m)

“A delicious, unpredictable mix of horror, science-fiction, romance, comedy and sex that is set in a world of exhilarating, Wes Anderson-style visual delights.” – Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle

“Often beautiful, never pretty, occasionally creepy and perpetually surprising, Poor Things lives in Stone’s fiery eyes; her performance is, to borrow Bella’s words, a changeable feast.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“You’ll never forget the nakedly unafraid performance that Emma Stone delivers in this rowdy and rapturously beautiful blast of feminist whup-ass from Yorgos Lanthimos. You won’t know what hit you, which is just one reason why I’m rabid to see it again.” – Peter Travers, ABC News

“It’s the best movie of the year.” – Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
