Poor Things | Preview Season

Your chance to see the Academy Award frontrunner FIRST!

Watch Trailer

For your chance to be one of the FIRST to see Yorgos Lanthimos’ Academy Award frontrunner, Poor Things, join us for a Preview Season of the gloriously unhinged masterpiece from December 22 – 24!

Get in early before the film’s general release on December 26!

Fresh off winning the top prize at the Venice Film Festival and from the brilliantly, bizarre mind of the three-time Academy Award-nominated Lanthimos (The Favourite, The Lobster), the delightfully dark comedy expresses an insatiable lust for life with lush visuals and exhilarating performances. Emma Stone (who also co-produced the film) is perfection in her richest portrayal yet alongside equally entertaining turns from Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, and Ramy Youssef.

This is 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 (Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (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.

Based on the acclaimed book by Alasdair Gray, the screenplay for the whimsical postmodern revision of Frankenstein was written by Tony McNamara, making this the second incredible collaboration between Lanthimos and McNamara (The Favourite).

Don’t miss this limited chance to tick the Academy Award contender off your watchlist early or for our true Yorgos enthusiasts, tickets are still available for our Campari Cinephile Previews on December 15 – book now!

Reviews:

★★★★★

“Poor Things itself is an equally – and brilliantly – surprising hybrid: a feminist coming-of-age story, monster movie and bawdy, foul-mouthed sex romp that the Greek alchemist has somehow forged into a masterpiece.”

– Time Out

★★★★★

No other mainstream director today is making movies this visually bold and brilliantly realised.”

– Financial Times

★★★★★

“Together, Lanthimos and his team of players and crew have conjured up a delight that – like its protagonist – is eccentric, smart, a little dark, lovely to look at and charming as hell.”

– London Evening Standard

★★★★★

Poor Things is a madcap creation myth with thrillingly humanist stakes.”

– Daily Telegraph (UK)
