Movie Info

Moll is 27 and still living at home, stifled by the small island community around her and too beholden to her family to break away. When she meets Pascal, a free-spirited stranger, a whole new world opens up to her and she begins to feel alive for the first time, falling madly in love. Finally breaking free from her family, Moll moves in with Pascal to start a new life. But when he is arrested as the key suspect in a series of brutal murders, she is left isolated and afraid. Choosing to stand with him against the suspicions of the community, Moll finds herself forced to make choices that will impact her life forever.


Critic Reviews for Beast

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

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.

April 10, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Beast is more difficult than it needs to be, and takes too long and gives too little.

January 29, 2018 | Rating: 2 | Full Review…

Two young actors shine and a filmmaker makes an impressive debut. Remember the names Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn, and Michael Pearce.
