In the 19th century, the young Bella Baxter (Emma Stone) is brought back to life through the wild experiments of Dr. Goodwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Resurrected with the brain of an infant, Bella’s brain begins to mature and evolve at rapid speed, awakening profound wanderlust and desire. Setting off on a globetrotting journey of self-discovery with sleazy lawyer Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), Bella rejects the prejudices of Victorian society and embraces the power of liberation.
This thrillingly twisted, imaginatively absurdist take on Frankenstein’s monster mythos is another inimitable visionary masterpiece from the utterly singular Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). Boasting a stunningly surreal production design, this unmissable deadpan adaptation of the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray co-stars Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael and Christopher Abbott.
