A special screening of Michael Pearce’s brilliant debut feature that blew the critics away at its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. 

Beast, is a love story trapped within a horror film; a dark fairytale following a troubled young woman living in the isolated community of Jersey in the Channel Islands who finds herself pulled between the control of her oppressive family and the allure of a secretive outsider suspected of a series of brutal murders.

An impressive thriller with an eerily windswept location that updates the traditional 'sleeping with the enemy' premise with a fresh and frank feminine perspective thanks to a remarkable lead performance from Jessie Buckley.
