The official poster art has arrived for My Animal, a romance horror film making its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
In My Animal: “Heather, an outcast teenage goalie, longs to play on the hockey team of her small northern town. She meets and falls in love with newcomer Jonny, an alluring but tormented figure skater. The girls’ relationship blossoms despite Heather’s struggles with her alcoholic mother, her hidden sexual orientation, and a familial curse that transforms her into a feral wolf under the full moon.
“Heather and Jonny’s secret tryst soon clashes against the conformity of their small community, exposing dangerous truths and igniting a passionate, violent night of personal transformation.”
Amandla Stenberg (Bodies Bodies Bodies) stars in My Animal alongside Bobbi Salvör Menuez, Stephen Mchattie, Heidi Von Palleske, Cory Lipman, and Joe Apollonio. The film was written by Jae Matthews and directed by Jacqueline Castel, making her feature debut.
