Film description

From Justin Torres’ celebrated novel comes a visceral coming-of-age story of three brothers tearing through their rural New York hometown, in the midst of their young parents’ volatile marriage. More sensitive and conscious than his older siblings, Jonah increasingly embraces an imagined world all his own. 

Propelled by layered performances from its astounding cast – including three talented, young first-time actors – We The Animals features stunning animated sequences which bring Jonah’s torn inner world to life.
