by Yorgos Lanthimos
The deceased Bella is brought back to life by the unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter. Reanimated in the body of an adult, but with the soul of a small child, Bella wants to see more of the world. She attaches herself to slick lawyer Duncan Wedderburn and embarks on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. The drama about the dissolute life of the freedom-loving Bella thrives on the colors and contrasts that director Yorgos Lanthimos has incorporated into his new masterpiece. POOR THINGS lets eras flow into each other, sounds like an echo of MARY SHELLEY'S FRANKENSTEIN and lives from its terrific cast: In the male leads, Willem Dafoe and Mark Ruffalo shine alongside an Oscar-worthy Emma Stone - performances to die for!
