Critic Reviews for Beast
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.
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.
Beast is more difficult than it needs to be, and takes too long and gives too little.
Two young actors shine and a filmmaker makes an impressive debut. Remember the names Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn, and Michael Pearce.
