Billie Piper and Leo Bill have a funny and compelling chat about the film Rare Beasts, that Piper wrote directed and starred in as a single mother complicated and nihilist. With a strong narrative rhythm, fast paced dialogues and a subtle and disenchanted sense of humour, the film narrates, as Piper says, a dysfunctional love story. And the modern battle between emancipated women and worried and under-prepared men, who suffer and mismanage all relationships.
Rare Beasts: Mandy is a mother, a writer, a nihilist. Mandy is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son in the midst of a female revolution, mining the pain of her parents’ separation and professionally writing about a love that no longer exists, she falls upon a troubled man, Pete, who’s searching for a sense of worth, belonging and ‘restored’ Male identity.
