This Is Not Based On A True Story. This Happened.

Telling the (almost unbelievable) true story of a quartet of university students who plan what they think will be the perfect robbery, the award-winning AMERICAN ANIMALS is a beautifully realised contemporary heist movie. The film follows the amateur criminals as they shift almost inexplicably from imagining the crime to planning it. Avoiding the pitfalls that could befall a film that recreates a true crime, AMERICAN ANIMALS instead adopts a dynamic hybrid approach that adds another layer to the film and serves to underpin the drama in new and unexpected ways.

Director Bart Layton (whose credits include the BAFTA-winning The Imposter) creates a unique true crime film, and the young cast, including Barry Koeghan (Killing of a Sacred Deer, Dunkirk), Evan Peters (X Men Apocalypse), Jared Abrahamson (Travelers), and Blake Jenner (The Edge of Seventeen) deliver some great performances. AMERICAN ANIMALS breathes new, vivid life into the crime genre.

Luna Leederville is excited to present a preview of the critically acclaimed AMERICAN ANIMALS on Friday 28 September! Arrive at 6pm, for a 6.30pm film start, to enjoy complimentary pizza courtesy of Sienna’s Leederville (while stocks last) and very special $6 GnTs with a Japanese twist (Midori) available from our pop-up bar!

“It's a wild ride that shakes up a common narrative by way of a refreshingly multifaceted approach. It's about time someone made a heist film like this.” – Film School Rejects
