Beast

Beast
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Michael Pearce
  • Cast: Jessie Buckley, Geraldine James, Johnny Flynn

On Jersey, a serial killer is targeting young girls while a young tour guide (Buckley) is struggling with her passive-aggressive mother (James). Pearce’s debut feature approaches the serial killer thriller from an impressively unconventional angle. James is brilliant as the outwardly respectable but cruel mother, Flynn is charismatic but Buckley’s achingly sensitive performance anchors it.

Julien (Gioria) is eleven years old and his parents are splitting up. Against his will, he has to spend alternate weekends with his hated father Antoine (Ménochet). Legrand tackles the issue of domestic abuse with great skill; it’s often profoundly distressing, but that’s precisely the point.

When the corrupt Mayor of Megasaki City sends all the dogs to Trash Island, his 12-year-old ward Atari (Rankin) goes there to find out what happened to his beloved Spots (Schreiber). Sensationally rendered stop-motion tribute to Japanese cinema, rich in detail and full of deadpan heroism and epic ineptitude. Delightful.

Gate Picturehouse

Situated in the centre of Notting Hill, this single-screen cinema is housed in a building dating from 1861. In 2004 the cinema underwent a modern renovation, restoring the ornate Edwardian plasterwork in the auditorium to its full grandeur, as well as installing air conditioning and a fully-stocked bar.

Due to the age of the building, there is no disabled toilet. Customers are advised to use McDonalds facilities opposite.

There is no parking immediately outside the venue, with the nearest disabled parking at end of Hill Gate street, the first left turn after cinema.

The nearest Underground Station is Notting Hill Gate tube, one minute walk away.

Bus routes close to venue are 27, 52, 28, 328, 452, 148, 70, 390, 94, 31, N28, N31 and N207.
