Beauty

2011, South Africa

Beauty is an intense portrait of Francois (Deon Lotz), a dutiful, middle-aged husband and father who frequently sneaks off to an isolated farmhouse to partake in an orgy with other white, married men. While hosting his daughter’s wedding, a charming young man named Christian (Charlie Keegan) approaches the proud father and something snaps inside Francois. He embarks on a dark, unwavering journey of obsession that leads to a shocking and graphic conclusion. Lotz is utterly amazing as Francois, who fills with bitter jealousy and tragically unravels in front of our eyes. Winner of the Queer Palm at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Beauty exposes the ugliness within a homophobic society by challenging us to feel the struggle and self-loathing of a vastly complex character. This is a shocking movie to say the least.
