Features a truly breakthrough performance (maybe two) and announces writer/director Michael Pearce as a talent to watch.

The charming Johnny Flynn ultimately struggles to find the right tone for the boyfriend, not helped by a director who hasn't quite mastered the rhythm required for his surprise ending.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Upgrading a sleeping-with-the-enemy premise familiar from countless B-thrillers with a faintly mythic aura and cool psychosexual shading, "Beast" also sustains a fresh, frank feminine perspective through Jessie Buckley's remarkable lead performance.
