Starring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Christopher Abbott, and Jerrod Carmichael, Poor Things is a 2023 film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara. Based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray, the plot focuses on Bella Baxter, a young woman living in steampunk-styled Victorian era London who, after being crudely resurrected by a scientist following her suicide, runs off with a debauched lawyer to embark on an odyssey of self-discovery and sexual liberation.

Poor Things won Best Motion Picture at the Golden Globe Awards – Musical or Comedy, and Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for Stone, and received eleven British Academy Film Award nominations, including Best Film.
