In the unconventional horror thriller We Are What We Are, a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers, have always kept to themselves—and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage) rules his family with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years. In this reimagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, director/co-writer Jim Mickle paints a gruesome portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive. Kelly McGillis, Wyatt Russell and Michael Parks also star. Official Web Site
