A wild and beautiful firecracker of a film, Yorgos Lanthimos’ period sci-fi is all we have come to expect from this singular filmmaker – and more…

When a young woman in Victorian England committed suicide, little did she know how much life lay in store for her. Re-animated by her de facto guardian, the scientist Dr Goodwin Baxter, Bella Baxter’s mind soon becomes increasingly alive to the opportunities the world offers. She eventually embarks on a global adventure and, unshackled by the mores of the era, sets her sights on sating all her carnal and spiritual desires.

Lanthimos continues his creative collaboration with Emma Stone, who is revelatory as Bella – a performance that will help define her place as one of the most thrilling and daring actors of her generation. Lanthimos’ direction is as impeccable as ever and the screenplay, by Tony McNamara, is a pitch-perfect adaptation of Alasdair Gray’s 1992 novel. (source: British Film Institute)
