QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A young man who believes he's a wolf is placed into a rehab facility with other like-minded teens and kids who must contend with an aggressive conversion therapy used on them.
PLOT:

Jacob (GEORGE MACKAY) is a young man who believes he's a wolf trapped in a human's body and thus often behaves like such an animal. His parents have now committed him to a rehab facility where the staff -- including Dr. Mann (PADDY CONSIDINE) and Dr. Angeli (EILEEN WALSH) -- use various forms of conversion therapy on the patients under their care. They include Judith (LOLA PETTICREW) who believes she's a parrot; Louise (ELSA FIONUIR) who acts like a horse; Jeremy (DARRAGH SHANNON) who envision himself as a squirrel; Rufus (FIONN O'SHEA) who acts like a German Shepherd, and Annalisa (KARISE YANSEN) who thinks she's a panda.

But the patient who Jacob views as a kindred spirit is Cecile (LILY-ROSE DEPP), a young woman who thinks she's a cat and has lived at the facility for most of her life. As Jacob tries getting used to his new situation, he and others must contend with Dr. Mann's confrontational and aggressive approach in breaking their delusional state.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem that likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For some abusive behavior, sexuality, nudity, and language.


I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
