Set in West Africa, Beasts of No Nation tells the story of Agu (Abraham Attah), a young villager who enjoys time with his family and making mischief with his friends at a nearby refugee camp. But these routines are shattered when army troops from the capital city arrive to squelch a rebellion against the country’s corrupt regime. His mother and sister escape to a nearby city, and suddenly he is on his own. Terrified, Agu escapes to the forest where he’s discovered by a company of young rebels led by the charismatic Commandant (Idris Elba). As the ragtag army sets off on a series of battles, Agu—now a rifle-toting soldier—attempts to find the remains of his childhood. 2015, US, 137 minutes.
