News from Cannes Film Festival: WE ARE WHAT WE ARE

Directed by Jim Mickle, the film stars Julia Garner.  Julia, a genre and indie queen in her own right, started out with a memorable supporting role in Martha Marcy May Marlene and recently completed shooting for Sin City: A Dame to Kill for.  

We Are What We Are is a re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, Jim Mickle paints a gripping and gruesome portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive. 

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) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.  The local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years. It also stars Michael Parks (Django Unchained) Kelly McGillis (Stakeland), Nick Damici (Stakeland), Wyatt Russell (This is 40) and newcomer Jack Gore.
