In case you haven't heard, Yorgos Lanthimos' Poor Things earned itself four gongs at this year's Academy Awards, most notable of the bunch being the Best Actress award that Emma Stone took home for her leading role. If you've managed to avoid the tsunami of praise Poor Things has recieved thus far, there will be no avoiding it after today. 

Thankfully, Disney Plus has got your back. As of 7 March, Poor Things is now streaming exclusively on Disney Plus in Australia.

What is Poor Things about?

Kind of like Frankenstein meets Pinocchio?

Yorgos Lanthimos has tip-toed around the edges of the fantastical and absurd with movies like The Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, but never so explicitly than with Poor Things and the world it depicts. 

Emma Stone's Oscar-winning performance sees her fill the shoes of Bella Baxter, a woman reanimated by a crackpot surgeon (Willem Dafoe) after a tragic series of events. In place of the young woman's brain, the brain of an unborn baby is used; bestowing Bella Baxter with the body of a woman but the mind of an infant. 

What follows is not your average coming-of-age story, where Bella breaks free of the men who seek to control her, and travels the world.
