"You've gotta decide. You've gotta work out where you fit."

Written and directed by David Michôd who makes his feature-length debut here, Animal Kingdom persuasively demonstrates that plenty of life still remains in the contemporary Australian film industry. Fundamentally the Australian Goodfellas in the suburbs of Melbourne, it ostensibly looks as if Animal Kingdom was specificall... read more

The story was original and the acting was superb, but there was very little redeeming value in this movie. The true depth of depravity and paranoia are on full display. Ultimately, the theme of the movie seems to be that revenge is the only answer.

It's trully an annoyance to know how the crime genre in filmmaking has become so much overcrowded with so much of the same kind of crime stories, yet there are quite a few that I may consider to be a breeze of fresh air, or instead, a fresh breeze of "samo samo". It's there that I place films like Gomorrah, to name an example, or this Animal Kingdom, which brings another story concerning vengeance... read more

Description: Welcome to the Melbourne underworld. Following the death of his mother, seventeen year–old Joshua ‘J’ Cody (newcomer JAMES FRECHEVILLE) moves in with his hitherto–estranged family, under the watchful eye of his doting grandmother, Janine ‘Smurf’ Cody (JACKI WEAVER), and her three criminal sons – the Cody boys. Eldest son and armed robber, Andrew ‘Pope’ Cody (BEN MENDELSOHN) is in hiding from a gang of renegade detectives. Middle brother Craig (SULLIVAN STAPLETON) is a successful but volatile drug dealer, whilst the youngest Cody, Darren (LUKE FORD), naïvely follows his elder brothers’ lead. Just as ‘Pope ... (more)

"THE DARK SIDE Jacki Weaver There is an old African proverb about spiders that says “when spider webs unite, they can tie up lions.” Weaver, an icon in her native Australia, plays a version of an arachnid in Animal Kingdom, a patient, cautious black widow, as well as a fiercely protective lioness who acts as feral den mother to a pride of thuggish, small-town crime lords. Turning on a dime without ever letting the gears show, Weaver pounces, leaps and slaughters with simply the raise of an ey"

"8/9 Young guy goes to live with his grandmother and her group of sons after his mother dies of an overdose. The group of sons has an ongoing feud going on with a kill first-ask questions later armed robbery squad, and as somebody dies, things really heat up all around.
