"The nightmare of war is seen through the eyes of one of its most tragic casualties--a child soldier--in this harrowing vision of innocence lost from Cary Joji Fukunaga. Based on the acclaimed novel by Uzodinma Iweala, Beasts of No Nation unfolds in an unnamed, civil-war-torn West African country, where the young Agu...witnesses carnage in his village before falling captive to a band of rebel soldiers led by a ruthless commander, who molds the boy into a hardened killer. Fukunaga's relentlessly roving camera work and stunning visuals--realism so intensely visceral it borders on the surreal--immerse the viewer in a world of unimaginable horror without ever losing sight of the powerful human story at its center." --container
