The true story of four young men who attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in US history.

Lexington, Kentucky, 2004: Spencer (Barry Keoghan) and Warren (Evan Peters) dream of remarkable lives beyond their middle-class suburban existence. Heading off to colleges in the same town, they’re haunted by the fear they may never distinguish themselves. Then, when given a tour of his school’s incredibly valuable rare book collection, Spencer describes it to Warren and suddenly, it hits them – they have all the ingredients to pull off one of the most audacious art thefts in recent history.

Convinced they can get away with it, they recruit two other friends and before long, the excitement of knowing what might happen if they cross the line becomes all-consuming.

Buoyed by an exceptional cast that also features Udo Kier and Ann Dowd, American Animals operates both as a thrilling true-crime heist drama and the existential journey of four misguided young men searching in all the wrong places for identity and meaning.
