040|Poor Things: 暗黑奇幻的旅程中,她把自己又养了一遍 Poor Things: a fantastical journey of self nurturing

【聊了什么The What】


Poor Things is a juicy, chewy, twisted coming-of-age fable about exploitation and womanhood. The two hours we spent following the curious, bold protagonist Balla Baxter provided a helpful chaos for us to metabolize an array of complex problems: the pursuit of female autonomy in a world seeking to define and confine it, the nature of sex work as gritty, exploitative labor, and, at some point, the ethics of biohacking and CRISPR.
