FAN New Releases

We're really excited to announce the next New Releases title: Jeremiah Zagar's We The Animals.

From Justin Torres’ celebrated novel comes a visceral coming-of-age story of three brothers tearing through their rural New York hometown, in the midst of their young parents’ volatile marriage. More sensitive and conscious than his older siblings, Jonah increasingly embraces an imagined world all his own

Propelled by layered performances from its astounding cast – including three talented, young first-time actors – We The Animals features stunning animated sequences which bring Jonah’s torn inner world to life.

Distributor: Eureka Entertainment
Available: 14 June 2019 (theatrical)
Booking: Steve Hills (Contact details: steve@eurekavideo.co.uk / 0208 459 8054)
