Friday Night Film Series: WE THE ANIMALS
(dir. Jeremiah Zagar, 2018, 93 min)
Based on the celebrated Justin Torres novel, We the Animals is another visceral coming-of-age story propelled by layered performances from its astounding cast—including three talented, young first-time actors—and stunning animated sequences which bring Jonah’s torn inner world to life. Drawing from his documentary background, director Jeremiah Zagar creates an immersive portrait of working class family life and brotherhood in rural upstate New York in the 1980s.
