Originally titled Skoonheid, Oliver Hermanus’ (Shirley Adams) Queer Palm winner tells the story of Francois van Heerden (Deon Lotz, Blast), a fortysomething closet homosexual living in a loveless marriage in an Afrikaans-speaking neighbourhood in Bloemfontein. Becoming increasingly obsessive over the men in his life, in particular his strapping nephew Christian (first-timer Charlie Keegan), Francois takes action and Hermanus delivers a leftfield narrative twist that is by turns disturbing and daring.
