Was the film well received?

Poor Things was met with rave reviews from critics although there was some debate over the absence of Glasgow – where the original novel is set - from the film.

Many people weighed in on the debate, including former first minister Nicola Sturgeon, and we also told how the director addressed his decision not to include the Scottish city in a recent interview.

However, The National also spoke with a number of bookshops who reported a spike in sales of the original novel following the film’s release.
