The unbelievable but mostly true story of four young men who mistook their lives for a movie and attempted one of the most audacious heists in US history; American Animals takes the thrill of the heist genre and turns it inside out, blurring the line between truth and fiction in a wild story of money, movies and the search for meaning.
