SINGAPORE PREMIERE

Dir. Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson
2022 | Iceland | Drama | 123 min | Icelandic with English Subtitles | R21 (Sexual Violence and Some Mature Content)

Addi, a boy raised by a clairvoyant mother, decides to adopt a bullied misfit into his gang of outsiders. Left to their own devices, the boys explore aggression and violence but also learn about loyalty and love. As their behaviour escalates towards life-threatening situations, Addi begins to experience a series of dreamlike visions. Can his newfound intuition guide him and his friends back to a safer path, or will they dive irrevocably into further violence?

Programmer’s Note: Beautiful Beings is a hard-hitting coming-of-age film that revels unexpectedly in its poignancy. This is what makes Guðmundsson’s work compelling from start to end—because his approach allows nuance and sensitivity to operate within a harsh reality without any aspect feeling at odds with another. In terms of performances, they are naturalistic and some of the best you’ll see this year from a group of unknown youths who are mostly making their acting debuts. The joys and limits of male friendships are put under the microscope, but under the director’s hands, scrutiny becomes poetic, possibly even mythic.

Awards: Winner of Label Europa Cinemas & Nominated for Panorama Audience Award & Teddy Award – Berlin International Film Festival 2022
