As beautiful as it is brutal, Palme D’or winner Julia Ducournau’s visceral masterpiece is an unforgettable feast for the eyes from the first discordant image. An extremely dark departure for the coming-of-age story, this remarkable female-helmed body horror is not for the squeamish and not to be forgotten. Justine embarks on a journey of self-discovery as she heads off to veterinary school and begins to evolve not only as a young adult, but – after eating meat for the first time in her life – she finds herself transforming into a different kind of human altogether. Exuberant, grotesque, carnal, and carnivorous, make sure you get your fill of Raw.
