Movie: Poor Things: A Cinematic Journey of Innocence and Empowerment – Review

Poor Things is a 2023 film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara, based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray. The film stars Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Christopher Abbott, and Jerrod Carmichael. It focuses on Bella Baxter, a fetus in the body of an adult woman in Victorian London who is saved from her mother’s suicide via brain transplant and embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery.

”Through the symbolism of colors and their evolution in Bella’s wardrobe, the costumes become a narrative within themselves, reflecting her journey from vulnerability to empowerment. As Bella grapples with societal constraints and navigates her path toward autonomy, each color choice speaks volumes about her internal struggles and external challenges. Ultimately, Poor Things emerges as a master class in storytelling through costume, offering viewers a captivating glimpse into the complexities of womanhood and societal expectations in the Victorian era.” – OLIVIA, tastemakerfashion.com .

Poor Things was named one of the top ten films of 2023 by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute, and received various accolades, including four wins at the 96th Academy Awards, two at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, and five at the 77th British Academy Film Awards, with Emma Stone winning Best Actress at each of these ceremonies.

“Poor Things is a film about innocence, about discovery, about human nature. It makes us question the way we view things, the way we censor behavior, the way we impose societal norms upon each other, and how seeing those norms disregarded can be both disturbing and exhilarating.” – A REVIEW by PAULA BRACKSTON.
