We The Animals
A magical realist coming of age story of three brothers set wild by their parents’ turbulent relationship. In upstate New York, Manny, Joel and Jonah are inseparable brothers, but their relationship is threatened as their father’s fury undoes the family. Acclaimed at Sundance, this lyrical film creates a vision of childhood where the line between reality and imagination is thinner. Director Jeremiah Zagar brings a documentarian’s eye to this beautiful film that recalls Beasts of the Southern Wild, Moonlight and the work of Terrence Malick.
★★★★ “One of the discoveries of the year” - Wendy Ide, The Observer
★★★★ “The joys and fears of childhood are wonderfully evoked in this intense and painterly drama” - Paul Whitington, Irish Independent
