The whole story of Goat focuses on the theme of masculinity and what it stands for in today’s world. Nick Jonas plays the role of the main character Brad (Ben Schnetzer) in the film, who tries to help his brother regain his masculinity by urging him to pledge his same fraternity. Jonas talks to us about how he fell in love with the screenplay from the moment he read it, and how he hopes that Goat will raise a conversation on the topic it deals with.
GOAT: Reeling from a terrifying assault, a 19 year-old boy enrolls into college with his brother and pledges the same fraternity. What happens there, in the name of “brotherhood” tests the boy and his loyalty to his brother in brutal ways.
