Directed by Andrew Neel

With Ben Schnetzer, Nick Jonas, Gus Halper, Danny Flaherty, Jake Picking, Virginia Gardner, James Franco

“Centered by riveting performances from Ben Schnetzer and Nick Jonas, this taut adaptation is a penetrating consideration of the psychology of violence and its role in defining manhood.”
—The Hollywood Reporter

Binge drinking, threats of forced bestiality, loads of piss and vomit: Andrew Neel’s dystopian vision of college Greek culture doesn’t skimp on the grotesque details. This unflinching adaptation of Brad Land’s memoir (co-scripted by David Gordon Green) dives into the merciless pledge period at Phi Sigma Mu, the fraternity that sensitive-but-jockish freshman Brad (Schnetzer) hopes to join, and to which his swaggering older brother Brett (Jonas, in a breakthrough performance) proudly belongs. Recently a victim of a car robbery and assault, Brad sets out to reaffirm his masculinity by submitting to the humiliation of the society’s hazing rituals. Cataloging the vagaries of this grueling process, Goat is both an indictment of sadistic machismo and a surprisingly sensitive look at brotherly intimacy. A Film Arcade/Paramount Pictures release.
