The trailer for We the Animals has hit the general internet.

Based off the 2011 bestseller by Justin Torres, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and has received rave reviews, according to Slash Film.

The novel tells the story of three brothers whose idyllic childhood is interrupted by their parents’ regular abandonment of them.

Jonah, Manny, and Joel must largely fend for themselves, and while the latter two grow into embittered teens, Jonah clings to the idealism of their early years.

We the Animals was Torres's debut novel and resulted in his being named one of the National Book Foundation's 5 Under 35 authors in 2012.

The movie opens in theaters August 17.
