The incredible tale of Bella Baxter (Emma Stone), a young Victorian 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 – with a stop in Lisbon and an encounter with fado singer Carminho. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation. Widely acclaimed as Yorgos Lanthimos best film to date, Poor Things is certainly the most visually extravagant, baroquely imaginative and technically challenging work the director has made thus far, earning him the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
