As the pledging ritual moves into hell week a rite that promises to usher these unproven boys into manhood the stakes violently increase with a series of torturous and humiliating events. What occurs in the name of ‘brotherhood’ tests both boys and their relationship in brutal ways.”
This trailer of Goat is somewhat misleading… The film is definitely not a pro-frat comedy movie, it’s a drama movie highlighting the the more nefarious sides of frat life.
