New York Times Critics Pick

Us three. Us brothers. Us kings, inseparable.   Three boys tear through their childhood, in the midst of their young parents’ volatile love.   As Manny and Joel grow into versions of their father, 10-year old Jonah shares his mother’s dreams of escape and embraces an imagined world all his own.

“…In the country’s most fortunate art houses, meticulously scripted, micro-budgeted Sundance discovery WE THE ANIMALS…celebrates the complicated identity of three biracial…brothers.   Clumsy like puppies, giggly like hyenas, these three half-white, half-Puerto Rican boys seize the opportunity of Jeremiah Zagar’s stunning, semi-impressionistic film to define themselves, coming off as something more than human, not less, so much so that by the end, it seems entirely reasonable that one of these children might sprout wings and fly away.” – Peter Debruge, Variety

“On one level…WE THE ANIMALS is a classic coming-of age tale; on another, it’s a near perfect depiction of the emotional damage that can result from economic insecurity.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times.

“Every once in a while a movie grabs you, unsuspecting, and hustles its way into your heart.   Jeremiah Zagar’s WE THE ANIMALS does that.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“WE THE ANIMALS unfolds almost as a dream, albeit one that never shies away from the often hopeless reality of what it’s like to grow up poor in America.” – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
