We Are What We Are. A uniquely disturbing tale from the director of Stake Land, Jim Mickle brings a tense, heartbreaking and dramatic horror to life in this beautifully told tale of family, tradition and death.
With breakout performances from Bill Sage (Boardwalk Empire) and newcomers Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Ambyr Childers (The Master), We Are What We Are is an undeniably stylised piece of cinema. Also starring Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) and Michael Parks (Argo).
The Parkers are a seemingly wholesome family but patriarch Frank (Bill Sage) rules over them with rigorous fervour. When tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume terrifying responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family, the local authorities begin to uncover clues to a horrible truth that the Parkers have hidden for so many years.
