Provocative and haunting, this powerful sophomore effort from Oliver Hermanus is an intimately intense portrayal of man's inner demons. Francois (Deon Lotz) is a dutiful husband and father but finds himself going through the motions of a loveless marriage while harboring a life-long secret. His sexual urges rise to the surface around a charming family friend, Christian (Charlie Keegan). Francois soon embarks on a dark, unwavering journey of obsession that leads to a shocking and graphic conclusion. Winner of the prestigious Queer Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Beauty is affecting, compelling and intense – a true must-see.
