While talking about her character Bella in a behind-the-scenes clip released by Searchlight Pictures, Emma Stone pointed out

 “She is understanding what it is to be a member of society and the more autonomous she becomes, the more challenged the men seem to be by it. I wanted to play Bella because it felt like acceptance of what it is to be a woman. To be free. To be scared and brave.”

Poor Things is based on the novel by author Alasdair Gray of the same name. Besides the Academy Award-winning actor, Daniel Defoe, Mark Ruffalo, Christopher Abbott, Jerrod Carmichael, Vicki Pepperdine, and Ramy Youssef would be seen in Poor Things. 

Emma Stone Was Praised For Her Performance In Poor Things

The trailer for Emma Stone’s Poor Things generated curiosity in the entertainment world. From the trailer clip, it was evident that the sci-fi fantasy drama was quite different from what we had seen before. Poor Things was widely applauded for its serious theme and the remarkable performance of Emma Stone.

According to a review by Geoffrey Macnab, from the media outlet The Independent, the American actor has given one of the best performances of her acting career. The review mentioned-

“There is a lot of ‘furious jumping’ going on in Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things… This is the phrase its heroine Bella Baxter (Emma Stone) uses to describe sex. Once she’s first stuffed a cucumber inside what she calls her ‘hairy business’, a new world of adventure and tragedy opens up for her.”

During the press conference of Poor Things, director Yorgos Lanthimos elucidated how s*x was an integral part of Bella’s character. He said-

“First of all, sex is an intrinsic part of the novel itself, [and Bella’s] freedom about everything including sexuality. Secondly, it was very important for me to not make a film that would be prudish because that would be like completely betraying the main character. We had to be confident Emma had to have no shame about her body, nudity, engaging in those scenes and she understood that right away.”

 Poor Things revolves around the life of Bella Baxter, played by Emma Stone who is brought back to life by implanting her unborn child’s brain by a brilliant scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter portrayed by William Defoe.

Poor Things is set to hit the theatres on 8 December, 2023. Check out the official trailer of Poor Things.
