About the Movie

A dark, dreamlike mystery plays out amidst the expansive farmlands of the American Midwest in this wondrous, storybook thriller. With her family's livelihood imperiled by the farm crisis of the 1980s, eleven-year-old Gitty (Peyton Kennedy) loses herself in a world of fantasy and make believe. But she stumbles into her own fairytale when she makes a startling discovery: a well-dressed mystery man (Richard Schiff) being held captive in her family's silo. It's the beginning of a labyrinthine journey that will turn Gitty's world upside down and force her to question her loyalty to her own family. The feature debut from director Anne Hamilton unleashes a torrent of gorgeous, stunningly surreal images as it immerses viewers in a child's imagination.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A movie that spirals into nonsense. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Feb 16, 2017

Fresh: Gorgeously shot, and helmed with a sense of daring and verve that belies Hamilton's greenness to feature filmmaking, this is a debut of obvious promise, although its story never quite rises to the level of its craft. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Feb 14, 2017

Fresh: Hamilton crosses farmer's-revenge melodrama with coming-of-age reverie and found-a-genie fairy tale, balancing expressive location photography with her cast's low-key naturalism. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Feb 14, 2017

Fresh: "American Fable" has its problems ... but it's a promising debut for Hamilton. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Feb 23, 2017

Sleepy, dream-like fantasy thriller. Instantly captivated.

Geat Indie

Beautiful, as the land.


Though this flick appears promising, and the RT rating is high enough (though in itself a dubious and inconsistent system), American Fable falls completely flat. I watched until the very last frame, eye rolling and cringing along the way and still, at the very end of it I was still waiting for some semblance of a story line to appear, some resolution... some depth. But no. Nothing. Heed my warning or... go ahead, spend your 7.00 and see for yourself. I felt gyped even at the SD price.
