Beast had its World Premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival

30WEST  has announced that they just locked North American distribution rights for Michael Pearce s  Beast  starring Jessie Buckley (Taboo, War and Peace), Johnny Flynn (Clouds of  Sils  Maria, Song One) and Geraldine James (45 Years, Calendar Girls). The  Protagonist Pictures repped  psychological thriller is the first feature-length project from writer/director Pearce  and received strong reviews after  its world premiere  on Saturday  night.

Beast  is a Film4 and BFI presentation of an Agile Films and Stray Bear Films Production and was produced by Stray Bear Films  Ivana MacKinnon (The Scouting Book for Boys, War Book) and Lauren Dark (War Book), and Kristian Brodie (Next Goal Wins)  for Agile Films. Film4 s Sam Lavender, the BFI s Natascha Wharton, Agile Films Myles Payne and David Staniland, and David Kosse all serve as executive producers on the feature. Beast was developed and funded by Film4 and the BFI (with National Lottery funding).

Beast  centers around  a small island community  where  a troubled young woman falls for a mysterious outsider who empowers her to escape  from  her oppressive family. When he comes under suspicion for a series of brutal murders she defends him at all costs and learns what she is capable of.

Protagonist Pictures CEO Dave Bishop said, The whole Protagonist team is delighted to have 30WEST take the North American reins of Pearce s powerful directorial debut. Beast is an exquisite feature film and we look forward to audiences enjoying it as much as they have here in Toronto. 

The deal was negotiated directly by  30WEST  and  Vanessa Saal (Managing Director, Sales & Distribution) of Protagonist Pictures, which  is handling worldwide sales on the film.
