The Netflix wonderchild that is Beasts of No Nation is a first of its kind. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the creator of HBO’s hit TV Series True Detective, Beasts of No Nation is the first in an (expected) long line of films to be released as part of Netflix’s original movie division (which in itself took over a year to develop and to acquire rights to films that could put the streaming service in the Oscar frontline).
240 films from 72 countries over 16 cinemas all contained within 1 huge film festival. What’s there not to love?
Netflix and Curzon announced a partnership today that will put Netflix’s first original film, Beasts of No Nation, in select Curzon Cinemas across the UK. The award-winning, powerful, new film written and directed by Emmy Award winner Cary Fukunaga (True Detective, Sin Nombre) and starring Golden Globe® winner Idris Elba.
