American Animals

Friday, June 29, 2018

American Animals is the unbelievable but entirely true story of four young men who attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history. The film centers around two friends from the suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky. Spencer (Barry Keoghan), and his closest friend, Warren (Evan Peters). As they leave the suburbs for universities in the same town, the realities of adult life begin to dawn on them and with that, the realization that their lives may in fact never be important or special in any way. Determined to live lives that are out of the ordinary, they plan the brazen theft of some of the world’s most valuable books. Enlisting two more friends and taking their cues from heist movies, they plot the theft and subsequent fence of the stolen artworks. Unfolding from multiple perspectives, and innovatively incorporating the real-life figures at the heart of the story, writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) takes the heist movie into bold new territory.
