Followed by a Q&A with director Bart Layton and director of photography Ole Bratt Birkeland.

After enrolling at Transylvania University, Spencer (Barry Keoghan) and Warren (Evan Peters) begin to dream of remarkable lives beyond their middle-class suburban existence. Suddenly, it hits them – they have all the ingredients to pull off one of the most audacious art thefts in recent history. Convinced they can get away with it, they recruit two other friends and before long, the excitement of knowing what might happen if they cross the line becomes all-consuming. Bart Layton’s first feature since 2012’s The Imposter intersperses the film with real interviews of the four protagonists. Both hilarious and tragic, American Animals asks what it takes to be remarkable and if it’s worth it.

American Animals is fiercely entertaining from start to finish
