Winner of Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actress (Motion Picture Musical or Comedy) for Emma Stone at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, Poor Things has been nominated for 11 Academy Awards and 11 BAFTA Awards. The film was also named one of the 10 best films of 2023 by both the American Film Institute and the National Board of Review. It won the Golden Lion prize at Venice.
From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes a tale about the 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.
The film also stars Ramy Youssef, Christopher Abbott and Jerrod Carmichael.
Extras include a making-of featurette and deleted scenes.
