From 52 Tuesdays director Sophie Hyde, Animals is an intimate, funny and bittersweet examination of the challenges of turning talent into action, and being a modern woman, with faults, longings and competing desires.
Laura (Holliday Grainger – Patrick Melrose, Anna Karenina) and Tyler (Alia Shawkat – Arrested Development, Transparent) are flatmates and best friends for 10 years. After a decade of hard drinking, partying and one-night-stands, their friendship is strained when Laura falls in love. But what is really stopping her from fulfilling her dreams?
A hit of the Sundance 2019 Film Festival, Animals also screened at the recent Sydney Film Festival. CTC on local release at selected cinemas from Sept 12.
“Hyde has forged a wonderful, utterly lived-in film about two women at a crossroads, one that attendees should be breathlessly, excitedly discussing around town, urging everyone else to see immediately.” – The Guardian
“Irreverent, funny and refreshingly unsentimental, Hyde’s sophomore drama gives Withnail & I a bawdy run for its money…” – Radio Times
“Grainger is a revelation and Shawkat a rebel in this delightfully defiant celebration of women’s imperfections.” – Empire
