Beautiful Beings (English Subs)
Heartwarming coming-of-age of a group of friends in Reykjavik who are discovering their burgeoning life toward adulthood.
‘Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson’s beautiful and cruel second feature boasts an outstanding juvenile ensemble cast… There is a freshness and an inhabited vibrancy that makes this painful coming of age story feel exactly its own. And DP Sturla Brandth Grøvlen… deserves a great deal of the credit for that, shooting the boys’ lives with an immediacy and a fluidity that is captivating, even when their behaviours are brutal. It’s a story told poetically, impressionistically, through sun-flare and cigarette smoke…’—Jessica Kiang, Variety
