Now playing in limited release is We Are What We Are.  Based on the 2010 film Somos lo que hay, the film centers on The Parkers, a reclusive family with strong sense of tradition and a taste for human flesh.  Director Jim Mickle avoids the pitfalls of many American remakes by reinventing the film while staying true to the spirit of the original.  With a bit of gender swapping and a complete cultural transfusion Mickle has taken the core of an idea and fleshed it out into a film that is grotesque, beautiful, and entirely his own.  We Are What We Are stars Bill Sage, Julia Garner,Amber Childers, Kelly McGinnis, Michael Parks and Nick Damici.
