BEAST

THURS 14 MAR

Michael Pearce’s Jersey-set debut feature charts a turbulent relationship between Moll, a twenty-something misfit who’s still firmly under the thumb of her domineering mother, and Pascal, a vagabond who turns her world upside down.  Writer-director Pearce has created an increasingly tense psychological thriller where desire and anger, innocence and guilt are intriguingly intertwined, and which deftly overturns expectations.
