Having screened at this year’s London Sundance Film Festival, Bart Layton’s American Animals is currently on limited release in the US, and now The Orchard Movies, who purchased the film along with US ticket subscription service MoviePass, have released the opening scene for you to watch online.
A bleeding of fact and fiction docudrama, similar in style to Layton’s critically lauded The Imposter , you can read our ★★★★ of American Animals here.
The extraordinary and thrilling true story of four friends (Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner, and Jared Abrahamson) living an ordinary existence who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in US history. But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, each of them start to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.
American Animals is out now in the US and hits UK cinemas on 7th September 2018
