Now in Theaters:

Poor Things (***) Greek director, Yorgos Lanthimos, returns with his first film in five years, a somewhat effective reworking of The Bride of Frankenstein. A scientist (Willem Dafoe) fishes a pregnant woman (Emma Stone) out of the river after a suicide attempt and reanimates her by implanting the brain of her unborn child into her body. Her journey of growth and self discovery forms the backbone of the story and makes for a mostly interesting film. Unfortunately, like just about everything being released these days, it overstays its welcome due to overlength. Stone’s performance is fearless and Mark Ruffalo, who has a supporting role as her suitor, has never been funnier.
