Known as the young, hip Muslim practicing character on “Ramy”, Egyptian-American star Ramy Youssef continues to make a name for himself in Western TV and cinema with his latest role in Yorgos Lanthimos’ sci-fi film “Poor Things” alongside Emma Stone. This is Lanthimos’ first film since his 2018 Oscar-winning film “The Favourite” which also starred Stone.
With this new movie, we’ll get to see Stone’s character Bella Baxter brought back to life by an ingenious yet unorthodox scientist named Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Defoe). With her new lease on life, she craves to live it to the fullest and so ends up escaping with a lawyer called Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo) undertaking a slew of adventures across the globe.
Having an all-star cast and the fact that the film was written by ingenious Australian playwright Tony McNamara known for films like “Cruella” and “The Favourite”, makes “Poor Things” a huge career step for Youssef as he continues to place Egypt on the global cinematic map.
You’ll soon be able to watch “Poor Things” as the film is set to premiere in September.
