Petula (Rachel Weisz) and Dorothy (Susan Lynch) are a couple of tough broads living in Glasgow. Their gangster boyfriends (Iain Glen and Tom Mannion) are constantly beating them up. When Dorothy knocks out Petula's boyfriend, trying to defend her from him, she realizes she has accidentally killed him. The women come up with a scheme to fake a ransom plot in order to disguise the murder as a kidnapping, but that only makes matters worse. From debut director Bill Eagles, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is a riveting thriller with a darkly humorous undercurrent.
