Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At 16, she’s a brilliant and promising student. When she starts at veterinary school, she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world.

During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions as her true self begins to emerge.

Debut director Julia Ducournau laces her sanguinary exercise in body horror with a caustic streak of dark humour, making it as perversely enjoyable as it is gleefully grisly. A truly singular coming of age fable… with extra bite!

In French with English subtitles.
