Beauty (105 mins)
Oliver Hermanus’ drama takes a tough, uncompromising look at homophobic prejudice in South Africa, focusing on a husband and father whose repressed desires come dangerously to the surface when he encounters the god-looking son of an old friend. With compositions that reflect his often voyeuristic relationship to others, and a forthright narrative style, the film is both unsettling and impressive
