Millennials seem to believe that their life should be like a movie. American Animals is about ordinary boys raised in ordinary homes leading ordinary lives. They are frustrated by just how ordinary they are. Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan) is convinced that he should go through an extraordinary experience to become a great artist. Warren Lipka (Evan Peters) is looking for excitement. Erik Borsuk (Jared Abrahamson) & Chas Allen (Blake Jenner) ride their wave of enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the choice they make for their extraordinary event does not go as planned. The interleaving of interviews from the actual participants with dramatic recreations is fascinating. Opens in theaters Friday, June 1.
Four young men mistake their lives for a movie and attempt one of the most audacious heists in U.S. history.
