Goats is not the next Disney Nature film, but rather a new indie movie from the producers of The Kids Are All Right. The trailer sure looks like it has a similar vibe to the earlier movie. The story follows Ellis, in his family made up of his New Age hippie mom, her hustler boyfriend, his absent father, and Goat Man, he is the most stable one at 15 years old. Heading off to prep school he reconnects with his father and finds himself using much of Goat Man’s teachings in his everyday life. The goar-herder lived in their pool house for as long as Ellis can remember and is the only one that tought him about “stablity, commitment, and expanding one’s mind.
The film stars Graham Phillips as Ellis and David Duchovny as Goat Man. Also in the cast are Vera Farmiga and Ty Burrell as his parents. Goat will hit theaters on August 10th.
