Beast

Duration: 107 min

A striking psychological thriller set on Jersey with compelling lead performances from Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn.

Written and directed by Michael Pearce, Beast sees damaged soul Moll (Jessie Buckley) irresistibly drawn to the equally tortured Pascal (Johnny Flynn) from the moment she first encounters him after wandering away from her own birthday celebrations. A local poacher, Pascal is also a suspect in a string of murders that have been carried out across Jersey.

On edge and desperate for someone to pay for the murderous crimes, the island’s inhabitants turn their attentions to the couple and their new-found love.
Garnering rave reviews after its recent premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Beast at times recalls the films of Lynne Ramsay, Jane Campion and Andrea Arnold. It is certainly a highly impressive debut that makes for intoxicating viewing and satisfyingly bends the conventions of the thriller.
