Set in an iso­lated is­land com­mu­nity,

Beast is the eerie tale of what hap­pens when two dam­aged souls col­lide. Moll (Jessie Buck­ley) is a trou­bled young woman who lives with her op­pres­sive par­ents. With a dead-end job and a scene-steal­ing sis­ter, Moll is des­per­ate for ex­cite­ment, at­ten­tion and, most of all, love. Flee­ing into the night from her dis­as­trous birth­day party, a chance meet­ing changes her life. There is an un­de­ni­able strong at­trac­tion to Pas­cal (Johnny Flynn), a mys­te­ri­ous and charis­matic poacher who res­cues her from a danger­ous sit­u­a­tion. Soon, Moll finds her­self pulled be­tween the con­trol of her fam­ily and the al­lure of her new love. A string of bru­tal mur­ders across the is­land, how­ever, has its res­i­dents primed for a witch hunt. Pas­cal be­comes a prime sus­pect and Moll has to de­fend him at all costs. This psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller will keep you guess­ing un­til the very end.
