Poor Things is a 2023 science fantasy directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara. It stars Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe and Ramy Youssef. Based on the 1992 novel of the same name by Alasdair Gray, the plot focuses on Bella Baxter, a young woman living in Victorian era London. After being resurrected by a scientist named Godwin Baxter, following her suicide, she runs off with a debauched lawyer, played by Mark Ruffalo, to embark on an odyssey of discovery and liberation. Today, Larry Mantle sits down with “Poor Things” screenwriter Tony McNamara to talk about the Oscar-nominated film and the process behind adapting the screenwriting.
