We’re incredibly excited to bring you an exclusive advanced screening of POOR THINGS, from acclaimed director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, Killing of the Sacred Deer, The Lobster) with stunning performances from Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe and Mark Ruffalo.

Be the first in New Zealand to see the film, weeks before it comes out in cinemas! The Terror-Fi team have seen the film and it’s magical… in every possible way!

The incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter. Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn, a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.”

Get to the cinema early for our exclusive custom pre-show!

The Hollywood Reporter – “Wildly flamboyant yet directed with unerring control, it’s also a story rich in contemporary currency, about a woman rebuilding herself from scratch, strictly according to her own rules, which provides Stone with the role of a lifetime. Or two, in Bella’s case.” (full review here)

Entertainment Weekly – “Poor Things is unquestionably the performance of Stone’s career, her wide eyes employed to perfection in Bella’s own wonder at the world. Holly Waddington’s costumes — a Vivienne Westwood-esque blending of Victorian, punk, and mod styling — aid in her transformation. Stone is a gifted comedic actress and she is an ideal match for Lanthimos’ tone, a strange mix of black comedy, farce, and social commentary.” (full review here)
