Beast

Beast Movie - The GBY

TIFF 2017 was rife with films about bad mothers.  Beast is one of the better (worst) ones.  Moll (Jessie Buckley) is an unstable young girl living at home with her uncaring mother, (Geraldine James).  Pascal (Johnny Flynn) is her new bad boy boyfriend.  The question is how bad is the bad boy and how good is the young girl?  The Channel Islands scenery is cold and forbidding as is the feeling of the film.
