Addi, a teenage boy raised by a clairvoyant mother, is the nominal leader of a trio of misfits. Bored and aimless, the crew wander Reykjavik's back streets, scale its dramatic heights, pick fights and crash parties. When Addi recruits a bullied classmate into his tightknit group, their volatile dynamic is further destabilized as their usual small-time pranks escalate and become increasingly dangerous. Seeking a way out, Addi begins to tap into dream-like visions and a newfound intuition to guide his friends back to a safer path. Iceland's official submission to the Academy Awards for Best International Feature, Beautiful Beings explores the deep bonds of male adolescent friendships and how they are complicated in the face of aggression, violence, loyalty and love.
