Content Consideration Warning
The struggles of post-war life can be as horrifying as war itself. BEANPOLE demonstrates those struggles in a brutal, honest fashion that can be hard to watch. This includes graphic depictions of PTSD episodes, suffocation, child death, and the sexual assault of multiple characters. Although its subject can be bleak or even devastating, BEANPOLE is a film of austere beauty about rising from the ashes of war and finding the courage to live.
