Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The nightmare of war is seen through the eyes of one of its most tragic casualties—a child soldier— in this harrowing vision of innocence lost from Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective). Based on the acclaimed novel by Uzodinma Iweala, Beasts of No Nation unfolds in an unnamed, civil war-torn West African country, where the young Agu (Abraham Attah, in a haunting debut performance) witnesses carnage in his village before becoming the captive of a band of rebel soldiers led by a ruthless commander (an explosive Idris Elba [The Wire]), who moulds the boy into a hardened killer.

Fukunaga’s relentlessly roving camera work and stunning visuals—realism so intensely visceral it borders on the surreal—immerse the viewer in a world of unimaginable horror without ever losing sight of the powerful human story at its centre.
