The unbelievable but mostly true story of four young men who mistake their lives for a movie and attempt one of the most audacious art thefts in US history. AMERICAN ANIMALS is a heist movie of sorts, an existential journey of four misguided young men searching in all the wrong places for identity, meaning, adventure and a “special” life. Documentary filmmaker Bart Layton’s first foray into fiction filmmaking is a fascinating reflection of young male privilege and entitlement, crafted as a documentary hybrid.
