What we know

A young woman is stuck living at home in a rural community on Jersey. When a messy newcomer arrives, she falls hard – but is he actually dangerous?

What the critics say

  • “Pearce has also written a well-carpentered screenplay; there are some very big scenes and big moments here – sometimes too big – but he gives us a carefully crafted dramatic setup, an intriguingly curated selection of suspects for the crime and all of it building to a fascinating, finely balanced ambiguity in the movie’s climactic stages.” – The Guardian
  • “Upgrading a sleeping-with-the-enemy premise familiar from countless B-thrillers with a faintly mythic aura and cool psychosexual shading, “Beast” also sustains a fresh, frank feminine perspective through Jessie Buckley’s remarkable lead performance.” – Variety

The Delinquent Season

ONE Media / YouTube

What we know

Two middle-class Dublin couples find themselves thrown into messy situations when an affair begins. Can they handle the fallout? Written and directed by Mark O’Rowe.

What the critics say

  • “The film, as its title suggests, manages to capture both the thrill of doing something transgressive but also the pressure to hide it from others. The scenes of intimacy are raw and sensual but forever tinged with the knowledge that things will not end well.” - Film Ireland
