Dir. Bart Layton. USA, 2018. 1h 57m. Starring Barry Keoghan, Evan Peters, Blake Jenner, Ann Dowd, Udo Kier, Jared Abrahamson.

A group of students orchestrate an elaborate heist at the college library. The target? A collection of rare and hugely valuable books about birds. Barry Keoghan leads the squad of budding bandits in this absorbing true-crime drama from the director of The Imposter.

‘A heart-pounding heist movie and a bantering conversation between real life and fiction…Supremely watchable and surprisingly poignant.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘A powerful hybrid film which decries, with entertaining panache and urgency, the utter nonsense of “alternative facts”.’ ★★★★ Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies
