Altitude Film Distribution announce 27th April 2018 UK & Irish release for ‘Beast’

BAFTA nominee Michael Pearce’s astonishing, intoxicating film debut BEAST launched to wide acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival and was nominated for First Feature at the BFI London Film Festival. The stylish, sexy psychological thriller features compelling lead performances from Jessie Buckley (Screen Star of Tomorrow and BAFTA Breakthrough Brit) and Johnny Flynn.

Moll (Jessie Buckley, TABOO, WAR AND PEACE) 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 (Johnny Flynn, CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA) 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.
