In this American indie film from 2012 we meet Ellis Graham Philips) who is fifteen and about to go to prep school; the same one his estranged father went to. He lives in Tucson with his hippy mother and a stoner, gardener/ handy man – Goatman- played by David Duchovny. They treck with goats, smoke locally grown weed and generally ‘hang out’; that is while his mum is off sorting out her chakra, making sure her ying and yang are in harmony and practicing primal screams.

He has to leave for school and is actually academically quite talented. The problems with prep school is no dope and worse still he has to re contact with his father – which will not go down at all well with hippy mom as she has a less than flattering pet name for her erstwhile hubby. He is soon finding his feet and friends at school but whilst missing Goatman he is also re- evaluating himself and those around him. This then is a coming of age comedy drama.

The term comedy has to be seen in the widest sense as it is more amusing in the making you smile department as opposed to laugh out loud funny. The acting is all quite good. Vera Farmiga (‘Source Code and ‘The Departed’) is surprisingly convincing as the hippy mom and brings a lot of energy to the role. The goats are great too. This is a gentle drama which if it catches you in the right mood can only warm the cockles of your heart.

Having read some terrible reviews of this film (one ended hilariously with 'This film is just b-a-a-a-a-d'), I almost decided against watching it as Goats is one of my all time favourite novels and I was worried that this would ruin it for me.

I did watch it, though, and while I can still safely go back to the book, I won't be rushing to watch the film again.

It's hard to believe that Poirier himself wrote such a leaden, ploddy script given how quirky and offbeat his novel writing style is and maybe this is where this film goes wrong - it should have been placed in the hands of someone who gets film, not just books. (For the record, please don't let this film put you off his books - they're all excellent, especially his short stories.)

I was looking forward to the film being as indie and offbeat as the book, but this felt very mainstream and very, very rushed, efficiently ticking off events in the book, never allowing us to linger anywhere or really get to know any of the characters.

I assumed the scenery would be the real star of the film and was hoping for long, breathtaking shots of huge Arizona skies featuring in Goatman's long, aimless treks. I was looking forward to really getting to know Lance and Freda (the goats of the title) who are brought to life so hilariously in the book. I was looking forward to getting to know Goatman, but all I got was David Duchovny in a bad ZZ Top beard and frankly ridiculous Neanderthal wig (note to the costume department: being a stoner doesn't mean that you never, ever comb or cut your hair.) His trademark impassive acting style meant that by the end of the film, I had no more idea of who he was than I did at the start, although I had seen him naked a few times, which almost made up for it.

My wife & I hired this movie, expecting little. We subsequently bought our own copy & re-watch it on a regular basis. As with too many indie movies, this one has been largely underrated & overlooked. It has an interesting & convincing cast of characters, a solid yarn & a wonderfully understated soundtrack. While I have yet to read the book, no doubt some will prefer it to the movie - that's hardly unusual. I highly recommend "Goats" as a worthwhile addition to your indie flick collection.
