Nominated for eleven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress (Emma Stone), POOR THINGS is being released digitally on February 27 and March 12 on Blu-ray and DVD.  A feminist adaptation of the classic Frankenstein's Monster story, POOR THINGS is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for strong and pervasive sexual content, graphic nudity, disturbing material, gore, and language.

From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos comes the fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Emma Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), 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.

The home video release of POOR THINGS includes the following bonus content:

  • Possessing Beauty - The Making of Poor Things. Join Yorgos Lanthimos, Emma Stone, cast and crew in the making of this fantastical film. Explore the costumes, makeup and prosthetics in detail. Take a tour with Willem Dafoe and see how Godwin and Bella’s home mirrors and accommodates them both. 
  • Deleted Scenes
    •  Brothel Doctor
    •  Alfie’s Chapter 
    • Bella’s Notebook
Are you geeked about being able to add POOR THINGS to your home entertainment video library? How many Oscars do you think the cast and crew are going to be bringing home on March 10? The Blu-ray and DVD are coming out just in time for people who see the film hyped during the awards show to bring the movie home to see. Do the Academy Awards ever inspire you to see a movie you hadn't previously viewed before?
