Animal Kingdom

Directed by David Michôd
Australia, 2010
Drama, Crime


Joshua “J” is taken in by his extended family after his mother dies of an overdose. The clan, ruled by J’s scheming grandmother, is heavily involved in criminal activities, and J is soon indoctrinated into their way of life. But J is given a chance to take another path when a cop seeks to help him.

Our take

Inspired by true events and featuring a who’s who of Australian acting talent—Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce and a scene-stealing, Academy Award-nominated Jacki Weaver—David Michôd struck gold with this, his feature film debut. A compelling crime drama, sitting with the best of its genre.
