Estimated read time 2 min read

Less than three weeks after Poor Things took four Oscars, including best actress for Emma Stone, the trailer for their new film has been released.

According to its official synopsis, Kinds of Kindness, which shot in New Orleans in late 2022, is a “triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.”

Superficially in the style of the Coen brothers, the film co-stars Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, both of whom were also in Poor Things, as well as Joe Alwyn, who played Stone’s husband in Lanthimos’s 2018 film The Favourite.

Stone and Lanthimos also worked together on 2022 silent short film Bleat. In her speech on 10 March, Stone thanked Lanthimos for “the gift of a lifetime in Bella Baxter. I am forever thankful for you.”

Other cast members include Jesse Plemons, Hong Chau, Mamoudou Athie and Hunter Schafer. Lanthimos wrote with Efthimis Filippou, with whom he previously worked on The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer and Dogtooth.

The film is set for release on 21 June in the US and 28 June in the UK.
