Directed by Billie Piper
Starring: Billie Piper, Leo Bill, Kerry Fox, Toby Woolff, David Thewlis, Lily James

Rare Beasts is the directorial debut by Billie Piper. It is a pitch black comedy about love and desire, and being a woman in the 21st Century.

Mandy (Billie Piper) is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son, Larch (Toby Woolf) 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 (Leo Bill), who is searching for a sense of worth, belonging and ‘restored’ male identity.  

Each screening will feature a brief recorded introduction by Billie Piper and Caitlin Moran, and will be followed by a short Q&A hosted by Reclaim The Frame.
