'Beasts of No Nation' (October 16th)
Award buzz has already started for Idris Elba playing an African warlord and 15-year-old newcomer Abraham Attah who portrays a boy he forces into his mercenary army of child soldiers. Says writer director Cary Fukunaga, who staged the first season of True Detective: "There's not one white person in it. It's not Leonardo DiCaprio saving Africa. It's mainly an African cast.” Beasts will debut in theaters and VOD on Netflix on the same date. That means it had better deliver the goods. It does.
