An almost unrecognizable David Duchovny is Goat Man. Yeah, I am not sure what that means either, but the theatrical trailer for the film Goats that premiered at Sundance was released today. It is based on the novel of the same name which was written by Mark Jude Poirier.
The description of the film tells us that it is a coming of age story that follows the life of Eliis (Graham Phillips) who is preparing to leave his wacky new-age mother played by Vera Farmiga (who looks so annoying she should be locked away in a room somewhere) and Goat Man, who lives in her pool house and is the "only father he has ever known". Apparently, Ellis then goes to boarding school and gets into some trouble and at some point has an encounter with his real father (Ty Burrell) and his father's new and pregnant wife (Keri Russell). The trailer tells us all of these things, but how they actually come together and tell a coherent story I am not really sure. Maybe the appeal of watching will be figuring that out? Otherwise, I am just confused as to how this film was able to secure such an incredible cast. Am I missing something?
