Scary: Idris Elba In ‘Beast Of No Nation’

Idris Elba plays a vicious but charismatic warlord in Netflix’s first foray into filmmaking.

Beasts of No Nation is about a young West African boy (played by newcomer Abraham Attah), who is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters. Elba is a character known only as the Commandant, who welcomes the boy into his “family” and trains him into a child soldier.

Directed by True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga and based on the 2005 novel by Nigerian-American author Uzodinma Iweala, it earned glowing reviews when it premiered at Venice Film Festival this week, and has already been tipped for Oscar success.

Beasts of No Nation will be available on Netflix on October 16th.
