    We Are What We Are

    ★★

    Part 6 of Hoop-Tober 4.0!

    It all went downhill from that intro.

    Don't get me wrong, there were some glimpses into an alternate reality where this is a really great film. The scene with the father finding the skull and bones in the tree that fell. Uh...I think a few others. A lot of Julia Garner's scenes.
