A husband and wife struggle with their consciences after they try to conceal a terrible crime committed by their teenage daughter, in this riveting suspense drama from German director Sebastian Ko.
Paul and Christine know their teenage daughter Sarah has been thrown off track by their separation — but is she capable of committing a horrible crime? Wanting to protect her, they decide attempt to hide her wrongdoing, but their joint guilt forces the family back together under a web of lies. The directorial debut from German actor Sebastian Ko, We Monsters is a gripping psychological thriller.
Tautly paced and psychologically acute, We Monsters is also eerily relatable. Ko photographs key scenes through mirrors, frosted windows, and broken glass, obstructing our view in a manner that slyly echoes Paul and Christine's perspective, obscured as it is by parental devotion and panic. Their story seems almost fantastic, but We Monsters will have every parent wondering: What would you do?
