“Poor Things” had its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, where it received arguably the best reviews of the festival, winning the Golden Lion for Best Film in the process before screening at the Telluride and New York Film Festivals to equal raves and rapturous response from critics and audiences. The highly creative film is now playing in limited release from Searchlight Pictures, and we have a few interviews from the film we’d like to share with you. First up is my paired interview with the film’s leading actress and co-producer, Academy Award-winner Emma Stone, and director and co-producer Academy Award-nominee Yorgos Lanthimos. After that, Ema Sasic speaks with the film’s screenwriter, Academy Award-nominee Tony McNamara. And to end, I had a lovely chat with another of the film’s stars, Academy Award-nominee Willem Dafoe. The film is up for your consideration in all eligible categories for this year’s Academy Awards. Please be sure to check out the film before listening as SPOILERS are discussed. Thank you, and enjoy!
