Cruella ★★★

Despite being an origin story that no one asked for, Emma Stone nearly perfectly encapsulates the character and makes you route for her against a very great performance by Emma Thompson, however, that does become a problem when we know that Cruella Devil is a terrible woman who will one day strongly endeavor to skin puppies alive (despite being "against" the idea in this film). That dissonance is distracting, but as a self contained movie its fun and the costumes are fantastic.
