POOR THINGS
POOR THINGS
(141min. R) 2023 Yorgos Lanthimos, director
Ends Feb 22
Don’t miss this preview of Cinestudio’ s Oscar – Palooza, our presentation of Academy Award nominated films screening March 1 -March 10! Poor Things isn’t at all afraid to break the mold of conventional narratives. It’s a wildly imaginative tale set in Victorian London with Emma Stone as Bella, a young woman who finds new life after her suicide, thanks to an eccentric surgeon (Willem Dafoe) who replaces her brain with the still healthy brain of her unborn child. As the infant within matures, Bella’s incredible curiosity about life – and her pure naivete, send her off on a fantastic series of adventures, some on her own, and some with a seductive, debauched lawyer (Mark Ruffalo). Her varied experiences from exhilarating to dangerous inspire her to seize liberation and reject the confining life of Victorian women. “The world is better having this wonderfully weird movie in it. It’s bloody marvelous!” Wenlei Ma, The West Australian. OSCAR NOMINATIONS: BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTRESS, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST  CINEMAOGRAPHER & five more.
