People left sickened after finding out what Emma Stone’s new movie is about

People are flooding to social media in heated debate over Emma Stone’s latest movie.

Creator and host of YouTube channel Beyond The Trailer Grace Randolph has taken to social media to condemn an upcoming release starring Emma Stone.

And Randolph’s comments have caused quite the heated debate online. Controversial plot of not, prepare for some classic chef’s kiss acting from Emma Stone:

Taking to X earlier today (29 November), Randolph declared that she has ‘serious issues’ with Stone’s upcoming movie.

She said: “Out of respect for everyone involved with the film…let’s leave it at that. P.S. just a heads up, it should really be rated NC-17.

“[…] I’m not reviewing it, and I’m not voting for it for any awards.”

But which film is Randolph talking about?

Well, Randolph’s critique is directed towards Poor Things, which she sums up as being ‘about a baby’s brain put in an adult woman’s body (for the heck of it) and then that woman having lots of sex’.

However, the official synopsis from Searchlight Pictures reads: “From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (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.”

And Randolph’s outspoken condemnation of the movie – currently set for release in January next year – has triggered an influx in conversation about the plot.

Some agreed with her take, one user stating: “I do not want to watch that.”

“I said this when I saw it at a festival back in September but none of my friends wants to believe me because the movie gets so much praise from everyone. I can’t believe no one else has pointed it out yet. thank you!” another added.

A third commented: “I saw the trailer and though it was very disturbing premises. Am glad am not the only one.”

While a fourth said that ‘some of trailers creeped her out’ and made her ‘feel uncomfortable’.

However, others rushed to the defence of Poor Things and were even more eager to watch it after seeing Randolph’s review.

A user wrote: “I’m more interested to check it out now.”

“I was already hyped af, but now I’m confident it will be my favorite of the year. Thanks,” a second said.

A third commented: “That’s a baseline one sentence, that’s actually NOT what the movie is about…but if you didn’t get it, you didn’t get it.”

And a final resolved: “This is probably the biggest endorsement the movie could receive.”

Poor Things is currently set for release 12 January, 2024.
