Lang Khê Tran
In her tiny island community, twenty-something Moll "Jessie Buckley" quickly falls for charming newcomer Pascal "Johnny Flynn". When he is named the top suspect in several murders around town, she defends him to her family but becomes doubtful as she sees his true colors. Geraldine James, Trystan Gravelle, and Shannon Tarbet also star. Written and directed by Michael Pearce.
I enjoyed this film. Just when you think the crime genre has run out of original ideas along comes Beast with its entirely fresh take on a seemingly conventional story.
The direction of Beast was often striking, the film had a good script and the acting by all of the performers was top notch.
My attention isn't always held at the cinema, even good films have their boring bits. I'm happy to say that Beast transfixed me from beginning to end. Many of the film's scenes will stay with me for a long time.
An innovative and haunting thriller, if you like imaginative cinema I highly recommend it.
