‘Poor Things’ to Showcase an Unprecedented Performance from Emma Stone

by admin

Yorgos Lanthimos is breathing new life into the classic Frankenstein story with his soon-to-be-released film ‘Poor Things,’ an adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s namesake novel. In an exclusive interview with Empire Magazine, Lanthimos provided insight into Emma Stone’s unparalleled portrayal of Bella Baxter, a character revived by scientific means.


“In crafting this unique entity, Emma channels an instinctive energy that’s totally novel,” he shared with Empire. “At times, she’d question, ‘Am I on the right track? Is this even working?’ To which I sometimes found myself equally uncertain, leading us to explore various possibilities,” he elaborated. “To be frank, I’m in awe of her,” praised Lanthimos. “During the post-production phase, I’d occasionally text her, saying, ‘Your work is truly amazing. How do you do this? It’s like magic.'” According to Stone, the constructive exchange with Lanthimos helped her mold the character. “Our constant collaboration was instrumental. I could always count on him for guidance,” Stone revealed about her partnership with Lanthimos.

The pair previously teamed up for the critically lauded ‘The Favourite’ in 2018. It appears ‘Poor Things’ is set to be another compelling venture from the duo, offering a distinct and surreal interpretation of the classic tale. “Working with trusted and loved ones granted me the freedom to experiment and make mistakes,” she commented. “Despite the vulnerable and revealing nature of the process, I found comfort in the liberty it offered. That’s why I relish the opportunity to collaborate with Yorgos time and again.”
