CAST: Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe DIRECTOR: Yorgos Lanthimos
From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter's protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), 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.
It can be hysterically funny and incredibly disturbing, sometimes in the same beat, and it's the most visually accomplished film that Lanthimos has made.Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
A weird, occasionally gross, and very, very horny film that's also a hugely charming coming of age tale about a woman with an infectious warmth and lust for life. Emma Stone is perfect as Bella Baxter.Perri Nemiroff (YouTube)
