Screening as part of our Made In Wales Season showcasing Welsh filmmaking talent in front of and behind the camera.
Rare Beasts is the dark, funny, failed love story of Mandy and Pete.
Mandy (Billie Piper) is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son, Larch (Toby Woolf) in the midst of a female revolution, mining the pain of her parents separation and professionally writing about a love that no longer exists, she falls upon a troubled man, Pete (Leo Bill), who is searching for a sense of worth, belonging and 'restored' male identity.
Rare Beasts is a pitch-black comedy and is Billie Piper's Directorial Debut.
Truly thrilling… masterful Billie Piper rips up the romcom rulebook."
"It is on a spectrum of its own… Piper's film-making is exhilarating."
★★★★ The Guardian (Peter Bradshaw)

"A red-raw slab of heart-on-sleeve energy"
