Emma Stone gives a daring performance in the latest bizarre tale from Yorgos Lanthimos, known for “The Favourite”. She portrays Bella, a woman who was revived after dying, with her unborn baby’s brain implanted by the Frankenstein-like Godwin (played by Willem Dafoe). As she regains physical and verbal abilities, she is driven to discover the true meaning of life. The self-absorbed and charming Duncan Wedderburn (played hilariously by Mark Ruffalo) becomes her mentor, but Bella has her own thoughts and a unique perspective on the world. Adapted from Alasdair Gray’s novel and taking place in a mesmerizingly unreal Victorian era, this comedy is both delightful and unsettling. – Simon Wardell

Femme, Netflix

ordRewordThe first film by Sam H Freeman and Ng Choon Ping is a skillful and intricate look at queer longing and terror through the lens of a revenge story.

However, when Jules encounters Preston at a gay sauna, he decides to seduce him. The power dynamic between the two fluctuates as Preston grapples with his true identity and Jules begins to develop compassion for his attacker. This thought-provoking drama is expertly portrayed by the cast.
