The bright, Adelaidean voice of Sophie Hyde (director, 52 Tuesdays) and bestselling Mancunian novelist Emma Jane Unsworth, transport audiences to Dublin for a shiningly authentic tale of female friendship at a crossroads, described as a female Withnail & I.

Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat (Blaze, SWIFF’19) star as best friends, soul mates even, as Laura and Tyler. They’re either side of thirty, having spent the last decade indulging their every hedonistic whim. But their bond begins to crack when Laura falls for driven classical pianist Jim. Seeing in Jim the chance to finally grow up (and keep up with a contentedly settled down younger sister), her attempts to balance her two most important relationships proves too much.

Honest, hilarious, and dead set filthy, Animals strikes a tone that defies all Hollywood female-friendship cliché’s.

“A wonderful, utterly lived-in film about two women at a crossroads … There’s rich detail and truth underpinning [this] gloriously untamed study of friendship, one that refuses to play by the rules.” – The Guardian
