Drama | France | Spain | 2022
2 hrs 17 mins | Subtitles
A terrifically tense French-Spanish drama about the conflict between impoverished locals and privileged outsiders, The Beasts will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. French couple Antonie and Olga run an organic farm in the Spanish hills but antagonism begins to flare up between them and the local mountain people who have worked the valley for generations. The tension slowly rises to a fever pitch until it reaches an unforgettable climax in this searing drama based on a true story, which invites comparison to similarly powerful 70s classics such as Straw Dogs and Deliverance.
The Purbeck Film Festival is very grateful to Langham Wine Estate, whose support will make this a very special evening.
