From Academy Award nominee Yorgos Lanthimos (THE LOBSTER) and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Academy Award winner Emma Stone – LA LA LAND), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe – THE LIGHTHOUSE). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo - ZODIAC), 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 Emmy award nominee Ramy Youssef (RAMY), and Emmy award winner Jerrod Carmichael (ON THE COUNT OF THREE). Premiering at a picture-perfect 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, TIME Magazine calls POOR THINGS, “Lanthimos’ finest movie so far, a strange, gorgeous-looking picture that extends generosity both to its characters and the audience.”
