2024 is shaping up to be quite the year already, and now another is added to the mix. Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, starring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo and Willem Dafoe.
Plot: Bella Baxter is brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter. Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn, 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.
