American Animals

From director Bart Layton (The Imposter), and starring Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, and Ann Dowd, comes the extraordinary and thrilling true story of four college students living an ordinary existence who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most outlandish art heists in US history.

It is 2004, and best friends Warren and Spencer long for fulfilment beyond their already privileged, middle-class lives. An opportunity presents itself when they discover some of the most valuable books in the world are housed in a nearby university library, and they begin to plot a heist along with two other acquaintances. But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, they start to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.

Blurring the lines between what is reality and fiction, including featuring the real wannabe art bandits to comment on the big screen recreation of their heist as it unfolds, Layton has created an audacious film that proves that fact is certainly stranger, wilder and more devious than fiction.
