Animals

15 cinema age rating  

Best friends Laura and Tyler live a wild life of parties, alcohol, and debauchery. Yet, when Laura falls for someone much more well-behaved, a classical pianist named Jim, she finds herself leaning towards into a more grown-up future that’s at odds with her youthful antics with Tyler. Sophie Hyde directs this funny tale of female friendship, starring Holliday Grainger, Alia Shawkat, and Fra Fee, based on the book of the same name by Emma Jane Unsworth.

Read the full synopsis

Full film details

Laura (Holliday Grainger) is an aspiring writer who lives with her ex-pat American best friend (Alia Shawkat) in Dublin. Together, they go about drinking and partying their hedonistic lives away. Yet all that is about to change.

Jim (Fra Fee), a classical pianist who doesn’t drink, comes into Laura’s life and she falls in love. Yet, the stable life that Jim offers is very much the opposite of the debauchery and excess Laura and Tyler are used to.

How will Laura find a balance between her friendship with Tyler and her romance with Jim? And will she ever publish her writing?

Holliday Grainger (Tulip Fever, Cinderella), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, Transparent), and Fra Fee (Monochrome, Les Misérables) star in this comedy, directed by Sophie Hyde (52 Tuesdays). Based on the book of the same name by Emma Jane Unsworth, who’s also the writer of the film, Animals looks at the friendships between women as they face up to life’s changes.
