A cooler blend of culture

WIN! Double in-season passes to see heist flick ‘American Animals’ starring Evan Peters

American Animals @2x

American Animals centres on unpredictable wild child Warren (Evan Peters, American Horror Story) and aspiring artist Spencer (Barry Keoghan), two friends from the middle-class suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky.

The film follows the duo through college life at separate universities, as adult pressures begin to weigh heavily on their futures. Realising their lives may never be important, they organise the brazen theft of valuable books from the Special Collections Library of Spencer’s college, including Audubon’s Birds of America, valued at $10 million.

Enlisting two more friends, budding accountant Eric (Jared Abrahamson) and fitness fanatic Chas (Barry Jenner), the gang meticulously plots the theft of the stolen volumes, taking cues from popular heist movies. But the thieves’ plans go awry, placing their bright futures in limbo.

Unfolding from multiple perspectives and shifting between the fictionalised central narrative and documentary-style interviews with the real-life figures on which the story is based, writer-directed Bart Layton (The Imposter) elevates the heist movie to bold and thrilling new heights.

 

‘American Animals’ is in cinemas October 04.
