The Goat takes a concept that is easiest told as zany and madcap, but instead wisely presents it as perfectly ordinary. If Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach made a kids’ movie (pun intended), this would certainly be their script.

Synopsis

When Kid accompanies her parents to New York City for a six-month stint of dog-sitting and home-schooling, she sees what looks like a tiny white cloud on top of their apartment building.
Rumor says there’s a goat living on the roof, but how can that be?
