Grand Jury Prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival, Animal Kingdom looks set to be one of, if not the best crime film of the year, already. Look on for three new taster clips and make damn sure you catch this one on the silver screen when it releases next week.
Starring Guy Pearce (THE PROPOSITION, MEMENTO) and the OSCAR-nominated Jacki Weaver, ANIMAL KINGDOM is a stunning modern crime thriller of brooding and brutal intensity. Masterfully directed and graced with outstanding performances, the film is being ranked alongside crime classics like A PROPHET, THE DEPARTED and LA CONFIDENTIAL. Following the death of his mother, the young ‘J’ Cody goes to live with his estranged gangster relatives. With conflict escalating between his family of criminals and the police’s armed robbery division, J finds himself at the centre of a cold-blooded vengeance plot. As he naively navigates his way through the criminal underworld, he is forced to question where his loyalties lie as he tries to decipher who he can trust and who can protect him as he struggles for his own survival. Animal Kingdom releases nationwide on February 25th
