Undoubtedly, Poor Things by Yorgos Lanthimos is the talk of the town this spring. Director Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone bring to life the incredible story of Bella Baxter. Bella is a young woman who is brought to life like a contemporary, nymphomaniac Frankenstein by the brilliant and unorthodox Dr. Godwin Baxter – brilliantly portrayed by Willem Dafoe. Under Baxter’s protection, Bella yearns to learn. Craving the sophistication she lacks, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a smooth and libertine lawyer. Together, they embark on a tumultuous journey through various countries. Free from the prejudices of her time, Bella is determined in her quest for equality and liberation. 

The film stirs emotions with the question of whether Bella Baxter’s outrageous behavior should be seen as that of a liberated woman doing as she pleases, or as an ideal of male sexuality. One thing is certain, Emma Stone’s sensational performances and the extravagant sets stand out, earning her the Oscar for Best Actress. A must-see…
