Movie Info

Jimmy is a terminally ill young man. He is also quite eccentric, bordering on plain old crazy, and starting today he has decided that he is 'happy' and no longer sick. Jimmy's roommate James is a healthy, dreamy young man. They're best friends. They live together. They don't do much of anything and they seem very happy that way. But trouble arises when it gets revealed that James will be leaving for a new job in the morning. Jimmy, feeling betrayed, is not pleased by this development. A classic, humorous battle of wills ensues as James prepares for the real world and Jimmy falls deeper and deeper into his world of illness, isolation, madness and make-believe. -- (C) Official Site

Audience Reviews for American Animal

  • Jan 03, 2013
    This was honestly one of the most bizarre movies I have ever seen. That being said, I found myself quite captivated by Matt D'Elia. There were moments of true depth and intelligence in this movie, as well as some things that made me laugh. Although, on the whole, it was just really, really weird. And I don't know if it was a good weird or a bad weird. It's unique, that's for sure. What did this movie teach me? Sometimes it's good just to do the things that make you happy, even if everyone will think you are crazy for doing so.

    Given that this movie, at its core, about the line between insanity and genius, its fitting that American Animal is both incredibly insane, and yet somehow quite genius.
