About the film:

A triptych fable following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.

About the filmmaker:

Yorgos Lanthimos is a Greek film director, producer, screenwriter, photographer, and theatre director. The experimental film Kinetta (2005) was his first solo directing effort, and his unique style and framing earned the film entry into international festivals in Berlin and Toronto. His film Dogtooth (2009), a drama about a family that has withdrawn from the outside world, earned the Un Certain Regard Award at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Lanthimos’ next film Alps (2011) wasn’t met with the same regard, but his first English language film, The Lobster (2015), cemented his reputation as a wholly unique auteur. The film won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, and Lanthimos received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. He next crafted the thoughtful psychological thriller The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) followed by The Favourite (2018), which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards.

His recent feature Poor Things (2023) won Best Film at the 2023 Venice Film Festival and received 11 Academy Award nominations, winning Best Actress (Emma Stone), Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling. The film also received seven Golden Globe nominations and won two—Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy (Stone).
