Synopsis: Sal has left modern society, his past, and his girlfriend to live off the land in remote Appalachia as a caretaker and gardener. But is this remote living freedom or its own kind of prison? Sal struggles with the isolation of his new job, with the death of a neighbor and a long distance relationship, and with the discovery of an abandoned child as he wonders where, if anywhere, he truly belongs. Beautifully shot and performed SOME BEASTS tells its story of loneliness and self-reliance with an uncommon grace.
"An immense film whose ideas and images resonate long after it's been watched, SOME BEASTS announces Nelson as a significant, uncompromising new voice in American independent cinema." --Graham Williamson, VERITE FILM MAGAZINE
