God’s Creatures” follows Aileen (Watson), a mother and working-class woman who finds new meaning in the monotony of her Irish fishing village when her son, Brian (Mescal), returns home after leaving the family to move to Australia years prior. While Aileen is overjoyed to have him back, his presence complicates things as he is accused of a serious crime. When faced with who her child may truly be when the layers are pulled back, the proud parent lets her impulses take over as she lies to protect him. However, that choice proves to have serious consequences not only throughout the village but within Aileen’s already fracturing family, too.
