Emma Stone’s “Poor Things” Sets Sail for Streaming Adventure (But Not On Netflix!)
Hold your seahorses, cinephiles! While many anticipated a stormy landing on Netflix, the highly anticipated adaptation of “Poor Things” will set sail on a different platform. But fear not, for this wild voyage through Victorian-era science fiction promises just as many laughs, thrills, and existential ponderings as ever.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Alasdair Gray, “Poor Things” stars Academy Award nominee Emma Stone as Bella Baxter, a woman brought back to life with a brain transplanted from a recently deceased fetus. Navigating the murky waters of Victorian society with a reconstructed body and unconventional morality, Bella embarks on a rollicking quest for revenge against the surgeon who experimented on her.
A Crew to Rival the Kraken: Joining Stone on this madcap odyssey are Mark Ruffalo as the aforementioned mad scientist, Gideon Booth, and Willem Dafoe as the enigmatic, possibly-immortal, Barry Lomax. Expect witty banter, absurd antics, and a healthy dose of dark humor as this unlikely trio navigate the choppy seas of love, loss, and gender identity.
Where to Catch This Tempestuous Treasure?: While whispers of a Netflix deal swirled early on, “Poor Things” will ultimately anchor at Searchlight Pictures’ streaming service, Hulu. Mark your calendars for December 22nd, 2023, and prepare to dive into this darkly comedic gem.
Reel Reasons to Raise the Jolly Roger:
- A Director at the Helm: Yorgos Lanthimos, the mind behind “The Lobster” and “The Favourite,” brings his signature brand of oddball brilliance to this period satire. Buckle up for unexpected twists, sharp wit, and visuals that will leave you both aghast and amused.
- A Cast to Weather Any Storm: Stone, Ruffalo, and Dafoe are a powerhouse trifecta, promising compelling performances and crackling chemistry. Their portrayal of these morally ambiguous characters will keep you guessing until the final wave crashes.
- A Tale for the Curious: “Poor Things” delves into themes of gender, mortality, and the very nature of consciousness. This is no shallow romp on the high seas; it’s a thought-provoking journey that will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about life, death, and the Frankensteinian urge to play God.
So, set your course for Hulu and prepare to be swept away by “Poor Things.” Just remember, buckle up, batten down the hatches, and don’t be surprised if this genre-bending masterpiece leaves you both seasick and exhilarated.
