Bertrand Bonello’s provocative and thought-provoking The Beast starring BAFTA-nominated actors Léa Seydoux (No Time To Die, The French Dispatch) and George MacKay (1917) had its world premiere at the 2023 Venice Film Festival to great acclaim and recently showcased at the London Film Festival. The visionary sci-fi film, which spans three time periods, draws inspiration from Henry James’s evocative short story, The Beast in the Jungle.

In a near-future world dominated by artificial intelligence, where human emotions are perceived as a threat, Gabrielle (Seydoux) embarks on a journey to purify her DNA by revisiting her past lives. During this process, she reconnects with Louis (MacKay), her great love. However, a sense of foreboding and fear grips her as she anticipates an impending catastrophe.

Exploring the pressing issues of artificial intelligence and the persistent phenomena of incel
culture, The Beast raises essential questions about fate, self-discovery, and the continuously evolving essence of human existence.
