Academy Award winner Emma Stone appeared in her latest critically acclaimed role last year, reteaming with The Favourite director Yorgos Lanthimos as the lead of the dark fantasy comedy Poor Things. Before the Oscar nominations have even been announced, Stone has already landed a number of nominations (and wins!) for her performance, including a potential Golden Globe win on Jan. 7.
If you're watching the Globes to see if Barbie's Margot Robbie or Emma Stone takes home the Golden Globe for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, you might be wondering where to watch Poor Things and, in the event you haven't seen or heard of the film, what it's all about. Currently, the movie isn't on Netflix and isn't expected to land on the platform anytime soon.
Because the movie hails from Searchlight Pictures, which is owned by Disney, it's likely to arrive for streaming on Disney-owned streamer Hulu like other titles from the production company such as Theater Camp and Rye Lane. The timing for the streaming release of Poor Things could be a bit different than the aforementioned movies, but our prediction would be sometime this spring, as early as March.
In Poor Things, Emma Stone stars the young Victorian woman Bella Baxter, who's brought back to life by a scientist. After her resurrection, Bella goes on an adventure with a shameless lawyer to discover herself, equality, and liberation. The film holds a 93% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it's no surprise that acclaim has the movie in contention for some of the highest honors.
The movie has been described as "bizarre" and "brilliant" and has earned Stone some of the best reviews of her career. And that's saying something, considering she's already won an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in La La Land and has two more nominations for Best Supporting Actress under her belt for the movies Birdman and The Favourite. Stone was nominated for Golden Globes for each of these performance, with other nominations for Easy A, Battle of the Sexes, Cruella, and The Curse.
While you wait to check out Emma Stone in Poor Things, the actress has a number of titles available on Netflix right now: La La Land (leaving Jan. 31), The House Bunny, The Croods, and the Netflix original series Maniac. The Curse, the other Golden Globe nominated title she's up for in 2024, can be streamed on Paramount+ with Showtime. It's the year of Emma Stone, and there's still so much more to come!
