We Are What We Are, breakout starlets, Julia Garner and Ambyr Childers will be attending the Cannes Film Festival. Julia a genre and indie queen in her own rightstarted out with a memorable supporting role in Martha Marcy May Marlene, echoing the trauma to come that Elizabeth Olsen's character endured and recently completed shooting for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.  

Julia recently wrapped Billy Kent's Hairbrained, starring Parker Posey, as well as David Chase's Not Fade Away with James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire).  She can also be seen in Stephen Chbosky's The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

Ambyr Childers started her career with an established spot on the daytime soap opera All My Children before breaking out in a pivotal role as the daughter of Philip Seymour Hoffman's character in the Oscar Nominated The Master.  Recently, Ambyr can be seen in Gangster Squad and will soon be seen in the new Liev Schreiber show on Showtime, Ray Donovan.

In We Are What We Are, a re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, Jim Mickle paints a gripping and gruesome portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive. 

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, Boardwalk Empire) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost.  As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers) and Rose (Julia Garner) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.  As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

Also starring Michael Parks (Django Unchained), Kelly McGillis (Stakeland), Nick Damici (Stakeland), Wyatt Russell (This is 40) and newcomer Jack Gore. Written by Mickle and Damici.  The two previously collaborated on the screenplays for Mickle’s first two features, Mulberry Street and Stakeland (winner of the “Midnight Madness” Audience Award at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival).

Produced by Rodrigo Bellott, Andrew D. Corkin, Linda Moran, Nicholas Shumaker and Jack Turner.
