Read Synopsis

An acclaimed writer for both stage and screen, Academy Award-nominee Michael Weller’s (Moonchildren, Spoils of War, Loose Ends, the screenplay for Ragtime) newest comedy is a blood-red road adventure directed by Jo Bonney (Fat Pig, The Seven). In Beast, two Iraqi War veterans—badly mutilated but as fiercely patriotic as ever—make their way home from a military hospital in Germany. Their marauding adventure across America takes them to Crawford, Texas, where they meet up with their Commander-in-Chief and offer a surefire solution to all his problems.
