From award-winning writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) comes the fascinating true story of four young men who attempt one of the most outlandish and bold heists in recent history that is still listed on the F.B.I.’s all-time most significant art theft cases. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh™, the film received a Grand Jury Prize nomination when it premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The American Animals Blu-ray and DVD include never-before-seen deleted scenes, featurettes, a director and cast commentary, and a still gallery, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $21.99 and $19.98, respectively.
American Animals is the unbelievable but entirely true story of four young men who attempt one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history. Determined to escape their predictable suburban lives, Spencer and Warren decide to do something extraordinary: steal some of the world’s most valuable books from a college library. Enlisting two other friends, Spencer and Warren meticulously plot the theft — but their caper takes on a wild life of its own in this thrilling film from writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter).
