Lanthimos, at the Venice Film Festival press conference, emphasized the movie’s audacious approach to sexuality and invited star Emma Stone to join the discussion on the sunny shores of the Lido.

During a press conference at the Venice Film Festival, Director Lanthimos discussed the challenges of handling the film’s intimate scenes and the decision to work with an intimacy coordinator. Initially, he admitted to finding the concept of an intimacy coordinator somewhat intimidating, but as production progressed, he recognized the indispensable value they brought to Poor Things. With Poor Things, Yorgos Lanthimos set out to address this void by depicting explicit sexual content onscreen.

“But first of all, it was a very intrinsic part of the novel itself, her freedom about everything, including sexuality. And secondly, it was very important for me to not make a film which was gonna be prude because that would be completely betraying the main character. We had to be confident and again, like the character, have no shame.”

In doing so, he challenged societal taboos and norms surrounding sexuality in cinema. Emma Stone, who played a pivotal role in these scenes, approached her role with unwavering confidence, displaying a remarkable lack of inhibitions regarding her body, nudity, and engaging in explicit sequences.

Fifty Shades of Grey had its share of steamy moments on screen, but it lacked depth and substance for viewers. However, it did maintain intrigue through its provocative elements. Regardless of opinions on the trilogy, it’s hard to ignore the undeniable chemistry between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Whether it’s the seductive elevator encounter, adventures in the red room, or exploration of BDSM impact play, these films have an undeniable allure that leaves viewers wanting more.

The electric chemistry and exploration of desires in Fifty Shades make it irresistible to fans of erotic intrigue. As Poor Things approaches, it raises questions about how we categorize Fifty Shades in terms of its cinematic exploration. Starring Emma Stone as Bella, Poor Things is set to provide a more captivating experience, pushing the envelope further with explicit s-x scenes featuring Stone and Mark Ruffalo.

The film fearlessly delves into human desire, including moments of masturbation, even involving a piece of fruit and full-frontal nudity. Poor Things boldly redefines onscreen eroticism, leaving Fifty Shades of Grey in its tantalizing wake. Poor Things will premiere in the US on December 8, 2023, and in the UK on January 12, 2024.
