A first official look at Beast, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Michael Pearce and starring Jessie Buckley, Johnny Flynn, Trystan Gravelle, Geraldine James, and Charley Palmer Rothwell:
“Moll (Jessie Buckley) is the black sheep in her otherwise reserved, stiff-upper-lip British family and their country-club world. Her adventurous spirit and fiery temperament are too much for them to handle. Home-schooled by her controlling mother following a violent incident in her preteen past, Moll is, at first glance, quiet and unassuming; but how long will she be punished for something she did all those years ago?
After escaping her own garden birthday party in favour of a night out dancing with strangers, she meets Pascal (Johnny Flynn), a rugged hunter with a guarded past. He proves to be just the tonic she needs. Eager to leave her family, she makes the sweetly satisfying, if rash, decision, to move in with him. But when a local teenage girl goes missing following a string of murders on their otherwise tranquil isle of Jersey, Moll must decide what and whom to trust — her own instincts or the animal she now calls home?”
Well, Johnny Flynn makes for one handsome beast, doesn’t he?
The film has yet to get an official release date.
