Billie Piper in Rare Beasts

Rare Beasts

Mandy is a mother, a writer, a nihilist. Mandy is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son, Larch in the midst of a female revolution, mining the pain of her parents’ separation and professionally writing about a love that no longer exists, she falls upon a troubled man, Pete, who is searching for a sense of worth, belonging and ‘restored’ male identity.

Billie Piper’s brave and bold directorial debut Rare Beasts was selected for Venice Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival and SXSW, and will be released in the UK on 7th May 2021 by Republic Film Distribution.
