    Oscar-Nominated Film ‘Poor Things’ Graces Screens, Garnering Acclaim and Anticipation

    Poor Things': A Cinematic Marvel with 11 Oscar Nominations - Stream on Hulu Now!

    In the cinematic realm, the spotlight now shines brightly on the critically acclaimed film, ‘Poor Things,’ a stellar creation directed by the renowned Yorgos Lanthimos. Boasting a star-studded cast featuring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, and Ramy Youssef, this cinematic gem has not only secured its place among the elite with 11 Oscar nominations but has also clinched two prestigious Golden Globe awards for Best Picture and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture.

    Adapted from Alasdair Gray’s novel, ‘Poor Things‘ unfolds its captivating narrative against the backdrop of Victorian London. Emma Stone, in the lead role of Bella Baxter, brings to life a character whose journey takes a remarkable twist. Resurrected by the eccentric scientist, Dr. Godwin Baxter, portrayed by the talented Willem Dafoe, Bella’s evolution becomes a subversive twist on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. As articulated by THR’s David Rooney in his insightful film review, Bella transforms from a Frankenstein experiment with the mind of an infant to an inquisitive girl with a hunger for sex and adventure, ultimately evolving into a fiercely spirited, independent woman.

    The ensemble cast, including Mark Ruffalo and Ramy Youssef, adds depth and brilliance to the film, contributing to its recognition at the Golden Globes with awards for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture and Best Actress for Emma Stone.

    With 11 Oscar nominations under its belt, ‘Poor Things’ stands tall in categories such as Best Picture, Best Directing (Lanthimos), Best Lead Actress (Stone), Best Supporting Actor (Ruffalo), Best Writing for Adapted Screenplay (Tony McNamara), Best Cinematography (Robbie Ryan), Best Costume Design (Holly Waddington), Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Nadia Stacey, Mark Coulier, and Josh Weston), Best Original Score (Jerskin Fendrix), Best Production Design, and Best Film Editing.

    This cinematic masterpiece is not confined to the silver screen alone. Digital platforms, including Apple TV, Prime Video, and other transactional video-on-demand platforms, now offer audiences the opportunity to purchase or rent ‘Poor Things.’ The film is set to grace Blu-ray and DVD collections on March 12, adding a tangible element to the cinematic experience.

    For those eager to witness the magic of ‘Poor Things’ before the Oscars take center stage on March 10, the option to stream it on Hulu becomes available starting March 7. Distributed by Walt Disney Company’s Searchlight Pictures, the film’s availability on Hulu provides a convenient gateway for enthusiasts to delve into its captivating narrative.

    ‘Poor Things’ emerges as a cinematic tour de force, seamlessly blending a compelling storyline, exceptional performances, and recognition from prestigious awards bodies. As the anticipation builds towards the 96th Academy Awards, audiences can savor the film’s brilliance through digital platforms or anticipate its physical presence in the form of Blu-ray and DVD releases. ‘Poor Things’ is not just a film; it is an experience, a journey into the eccentric and enthralling world crafted by Yorgos Lanthimos and brought to life by a stellar cast.
