Emma Stone’s Bella Baxter Immortalized: Oscar-nominated film “Poor Things” is undeniably one of the best films of last year. From its great premise to a talented star cast and top-notch aesthetics, the film excels in every category. Since it’s an Academy-nominated film, one thing is evident: the effort of the people involved in the film indeed paid off.

A major contribution goes to the exquisite visual representation of the film, thanks to the filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos. The rich aesthetics of the film impacted an artist so much that she brought the character of Bella Baxter (portrayed by Emma Stone) to life in an impressive watercolor portrait.

Emma Stone’s character in Poor Things received an artistic tribute

Known for helming films like “The Lobster” and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos delivered a masterpiece to Hollywood last year in 2023 with “Poor Things.” The film starred Emma Stone in the lead role as Bell Baxter. Based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gary, “Poor Things” follows the story of Bella, a young woman in Victorian London who comes to life through a brain transplant and embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery.

The film was both a commercial and a critical success, earning several nominations at the Oscars. Stone’s performance as Baxter was particularly praised by the critics. While Stone gave a noteworthy performance, she also impacted many with her role.

An artist named  Vanessa McKee on X, formerly Twitter, impressed by her character, made an appealing portrait of her character, Bella. The stunning watercolor painting depicted Stone’s look from the film, including her dark hair and her frilly 19th-century garb, looking wide-eyed up to the sky.

Poor Things is Emma Stone’s one of the best performances to date

Emma Stone’s performance and Yorgos Lanthimos’s incredible directorial vision led to the masterpiece “Poor Things.” The film was released in December 2023, and garnered positive reviews from both audience and critics. Stone, who is also a producer of the film, has been praised for her bold performance as the naive, unrestrained Bella. She has even garnered several awards and nominations for her role, including top honors like the Oscars. The film has been nominated in a total of eleven categories, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor for Mark Ruffalo.

Apart from all these critical acclaim, “Poor Things” was also a box-office success. It has earned an impressive $99.6 million at the box office on a budget of $35 million.
