Beasts of No Nation

2015

Cary Joji Fukunaga
Director

In war-torn Africa, a small boy falls in with a militia.

Horrible and compelling because you can't but help think that this sort of thing is happening for real in many places in the World. Should be compulsory viewing for those who have no sympathies for refugees.

Idris Elba is good, but Abraham Attah as the boy is phenomenal.
