Yorgos LANTHIMOS USA, UK, Ireland 2023 140 min R21 (Sexual Scenes and Nudity)
A clandestine young woman embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery in Yorgos Lanthimos’s bold and hypnotic examination of human nature.
In a surreal futuristic world, Bella Baxter lives with her unconventional father, Godwin Baxter, who shields her from the harshness that lies outside their door. Upon discovering pleasure, Bella absconds with the sweet-talking sycophant Danny Wedderburn, romping the world in a series of escalating sexcapades. Through her adventures, she confronts the farce of polite society and the unpleasantries of man, solidifying her own agency against a decaying humanity.
Emma Stone’s triumphant performance of innocence is a whirlwind of feminine rage. A stylistic departure for Lanthimos, Poor Things is a riot of humorous rebellion, welcoming obscenity as a confrontation for the traditional bildungsroman.
