The 10 most anticipated independent films of 2015
7. Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation
7. Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation
The plot: Agu, a young african boy, is forced to join a group of mercenary fighters when a civil war hits his country. He will have to face a violent reality.
Reasons for anticipation: Fukunaga’s first feature “Sin Nombre” was released in Sundance Film Festival, and then he directed the remarkable “Jane Eyre”, leaded by Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. He became well known thanks to his work as a director in the first season of “True Detective”. The cast of “Beasts of No Nation” includes Idris Elba and a group of non professional child actors, and the film may be closer to the social concerns of “Sin Nombre” than the character’s study from “Jane Eyre”.
Keep in mind that: Fukunaga’s next project is an adaptation of “It”, one of the best horror novels written by Stephen King. With such a great material and a talented director like Fukunaga, the outcome should be impressive.
