Based on a true story, American Animals describes the misadventure of four bright students from well-off families who, wanting to break free from their mundane and insignificant lives in a Kentucky small town, sought media fame by planning the robbery of antique books safe kept at their university. Their greatest obstacle was their own childish naivety.
Through the performance of an impeccable cast and by working with the real authors of this robbery in a documentary research style, Bart Layton offers us, in his first fiction feature film, an unusual gangsters movie, which uses humor to catalyze the drama of some small-town teenagers and their dreams of greatness.
