Rare Beasts is the dark, funny, failed love story of Mandy and Pete. Mandy (Billie Piper) is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son, Larch (Toby Woolf) in the midst of a female revolution, mining the pain of her parents’ separation and professionally writing about a love that no longer exists, she falls upon a troubled man, Pete (Leo Bill), who is searching for a sense of worth, belonging and ‘restored’ male identity.
Rare Beasts is a pitch-black comedy and is Billie Piper’s Directorial Debut.
Written & Directed by Billie Piper. Starring Billie Piper, Leo Bill, Kerry Fox, Toby Woolff, David Thewlis and Lily James.

“An ambitious, darkly-funny directorial debut from Billie Piper” “Will leave you spinning and breathless” “Audacious….A wild directorial debut” “Rare Beasts doesn’t so much lightly skewer love and romance as take a big old bulldozer to every corner of modern life” **Empire Magazine **** (Terri White)**
“A fully-formed director, a forcefully original writer and a brilliant performer – on the evidence of Rare Beasts, Ms Piper might be one of the most exciting big screen talents to emerge from the UK for some time” “A red-raw slab of heart-on-sleeve energy” **Little White Lies **** (David Jenkins)**
