When a young vegetarian undergoes a carnivorous hazing ritual at vet school, an unbidden taste for meat begins to grow in her.
A coming-of-age cannibal movie could – as you’d expect – never be a sweet, gentle tale of teenage years. The synopsis alone is enough to draw away your regular cinema-going audience, but those who are smart and semi-curious should flock to see this film. It won’t take long for word-of-mouth to spread around about the film and hopefully draw in the crowds. For a feature directorial debut, Julia Ducournau has immediately cemented herself as one of the 21st century’s most promising talents. Her efforts and tact with the material warrants the aforementioned word-of-mouth and those who may flock.
