Genre: Crime, Drama. Dir: Bart Layton. Country: UK / USA.
It’s the heady days of 2004, and best friends Spencer and Warren dream of outgrowing their middle-class existence. When they spy a couple of ultra-rare first edition books in the university library, they realise this could be their ticket to fortune. Recruiting their friends to the heist, the boys become convinced they may just pull off the most daring art theft in modern history. American Animals proves that fiction cannot hold a candle to reality when it comes to sheer audacity and jaw-dropping outrageousness. Wildly entertaining.
