Nobody wants to be ordinary
Stuff James Croot 4/5 Stars “Layton delivers the requisite action with aplomb (including the use of split screens and key moments happening outside of the frame), as well as plenty of black humour and a mood-setting soundtrack that includes everyone from Donovan to The Doors and Rage Against the Machine to The Ramones.  All in all, American Animals is at once a stylish thriller and an insightful documentary.”

But not everything is as it seems, and as the daring theft unfolds through each of their perspectives, each of them starts to question whether their attempts to inject excitement and purpose into their lives is simply a misguided attempt at achieving the American Dream.
