The overall narrative of Beast mainly revolves around the idea of survival.

The official description of the movie reads: 

“Dr. Nate Daniels, a recently widowed husband who returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with their daughters to a game reserve managed by Martin Battles, an old family friend, and wildlife biologist. But what begins as a journey of healing jolts into a fearsome fight for survival when a lion, a survivor of blood-thirsty poachers who now sees all humans as the enemy, begins to stalk them.”

Idris Elba will be taking on the leading role as Dr. Nate Daniels. In addition to Elba, the cast list of Beast consists of Sharlto Copley, a South African actor who will play Martin Battles, and Iyana Halley, who will play Daniels’ 18-year-old daughter, Meredith, and Leah Sava Jefferies. They will play the youngest daughter, Norah.

It’s likely that the outfit you purchase from a boutique won’t be challenged at a formal occasion or a night out.
