Jessie Buckley is going to be one of these names that we will be saying “We knew her when…”. Her performance in Michael Pearce’s Beast is incredible, and Pearce has made a truly wonderful Platform film that was bought by 30West during TIFF. We sat down with the two at The L.A. Times Lounge, Buckley having recently been chosen as a TIFF International Rising Star and randomly running into her pal Nicholas Holly seconds earlier.
We highly recommend everyone in the London area to see Beast where it’s vying for the Best First Feature award at the BFI London Film Festival 2017.
The following video interview from TIFF is a condensed version of our lively conversation with Buckley and Pearce.
Beast is playing at the BFI London Film Festival on October 7th at 6pm, October 8th at 3:30pm and October 9th at 12:30pm. Check here for tickets and more information.
