2016-09-08
James Franco been dealing with masculinity in all its forms through his recent film work, from the gay porn biopic King Cobra - which debuts at the BFI London Film Festival in October - to his latest effort, fraternity flick Goat. Goat takes a look at American frat culture: brotherhood, hazing, dodgy ritruals and even some of the darker elements of the great US college tradition. Starring former Attitude cover stars Nick Jonas and Ben Schnetzer, as well as a cameo from Franco himself, the film looks set to leave audiences wondering if frat culture is really worth the humiliation, danger and risk requires to maintain it. The official symopsis reads:
Reeling from a terrifying assault over the summer, 19-year-old Brad Land (Ben Schnetzer) starts college determined to get his life back to normal. His brother, Brett (Nick Jonas), is already established on campus and with a fraternity that allures Brad with its promise of protection, popularity, and life-long friendships. Brad is desperate to belong but as he sets out to join the fraternity his brother exhibits reservations, a sentiment that threatens to divide them. 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.
