    Synopsis

    Synopsis: In 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, Boardwalk Empire) 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, THE MASTER) and Rose (Julia Garner, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR) 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.

    WE ARE WHAT WE ARE also stars Michael Parks (DJANGO UNCHAINED), Golden Globe Nominee Kelly McGillis (WITNESS), Nick Damici (STAKELAND), Wyatt Russell (THIS IS 40) and newcomer Jack Gore. WE ARE WHAT WE ARE was written by Mickle and Damici. The two previously collaborated on the screenplays for Mickles first two features, MULBERRY STREET and STAKELAND (winner of the Midnight Madness Audience Award at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival).

    A re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, director Jim Mickle paints a gripping portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive.

    The film had its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival before screening at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight.
