A Cannes Critics’ Week prizewinner, Julia Ducournau’s debut feature is a surreal and deliriously twisted coming-of-age story.
Attending her first year at veterinarian college, shy vegetarian Justine is forced into eating raw liver as part of a vicious hazing process by older students. However, she soon develops an unhealthy taste for meat that drives her to commit acts of increasing savagery, as unquenched sexual urges turn into an appetite for human flesh.
Bold, daring, provocative and shocking - and with an abundance of subtext to sink your teeth into - this feminist teen cannibal tale oozes with youthful exuberance.
"A cleverly written, impressively made and incredibly gory tale of one young woman's awakening to the pleasures of the flesh - in all senses of the term." - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
