The Beast

The year is 2044. Artificial intelligence controls all facets of society as humans routinely “erase” their feelings in order to gain access to better jobs and social standing. Hoping to eliminate pain caused by their past-life romances, Gabrielle (Léa Seydoux) and Louis (George MacKay) both undertake the purification process, but to what end? Visually audacious director Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama) fashions his most accomplished film to date: a sci-fi epic, inspired by Henry James' turn- of-the-century novella "The Beast in the Jungle." Suffused with mounting dread and a haunting sense of mystery, THE BEAST touches on modern anxieties and like all good science-fiction, asks essential questions about the ever-shifting status of humanity itself.
