Set in 1970s London during the punk rock revolution, Cruella follows an aspiring fashion designer named Estella (Emma Stone) in her ascent into the high-end world of haute couture and subsequent descent into wickedness and revenge. Cruella is the latest in Disney’s line of live-action adaptations, but “what could have been a mere IP cash-in instead becomes an unexpectedly cinematic romp, delivered with the sort of style, snarl, and eccentricity that Cruella herself would likely applaud. She makes being bad look very good.” (Empire)
