The Beast

31 May – 13 June, 2024

French auteur Bertrand Bonello presents a bold, centuries-spanning tale of romance and obsession in the shadow of an impending catastrophe, freely adapted from Henry James’s The Beast in the Jungle.

Léa Seydoux and George MacKay engage in a doomed romance across three different time periods. In the year 2044, Seydoux’s Gabrielle is attempting to ‘purify’ her DNA from emotions, which leads her to consider her past lives. In the process, she realises her multiple existences – including those in 1910 and 2014 – have been entwined with those of a man named Louis (MacKay), for good and ill. Past and future fears come together in a heady and provocative mix.

French and English with English subtitles.
