New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: A Preview of the 2018 Chicago Critics Film Festival

By Andrea Thompson

Beast isn’t just one of the most unsettling movies you’ll ever watch; it practically drips menace from every frame, every moment. The movie follows Moll (Jessie Buckley), a deeply troubled young woman whose defining trait (at least at first) is the stifling, confining nature of her life. Her wealthy family, her isolated, repressive island community, and her own past may as well be a series of chains tightly wound around her, keeping her firmly in the place that’s been chosen for her.
