Swapping Glasgow for London, this highly stylistic adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s novel of the same name throws us into a surreal steampunk Victorian world.

Bella Baxter is the latest experiment of renowned surgeon Godwin ‘God’ Baxter. At first guileless and without a filter, Bella develops intelligence and awareness at a rapid rate. After a sexual awakening, she takes flight with the rakish lawyer Duncan Wedderburn so she can experience and understand the world. Despite Duncan’s attempts to inhibit and control her, Bella will not restrain her colourfully indulgent journey of self-discovery.

From the absurdist director of The Favourite, this black comedy weaves science and fantasy together to take us through an equally bizarre and funny story about personal growth. Its imagery, music, and performances are all heightened to depict a truly unique world. Features numerous scenes with full frontal nudity and sex.

“Poor Things is resolutely forthright about the joys of the flesh.” The Tyee

“daringly outrageous and often hilarious” BBC

18: strong sex, nudity, very strong language
