Rare Beasts is the dark, funny, failed love story of Mandy and Pete. 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.
Rare Beasts is a pitch black comedy and is Billie Piper’s Directorial Debut. Also starring David Thewlis, Kerry Fox and Lily James.
