Rama Burshtein's acclaimed Israeli family drama, set within an Orthodox Jewish community
Teenaged Josh (James Frecheville) gradually learns he may have as much to fear from his viciously criminal relatives as he does from the policemen determined to bring the Cody family to justice
Discomforting Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom is a difficult film to review, because all we really want to tell you is: go and see it. That would make for an incredibly brief review, so in the interests of making a better case, here are three more reasons that this story of a family of working class criminals from the land Down Under deserves your love.
1. Jacki Weaver's slow-burning role as a snake-eyed grandmother bestowing overly-lingering kisses on her grown-up grandsons is a mesmeric performance entirely worthy of the Oscar nomination it has received.
2. Animal Kingdom will renew your faith in the ability of the low-budget gangster movie to be a classy and well-made piece of cinema into the bargain.
3. You'll barely be able to believe this is director David Michod's first feature film - he shows plenty of more experienced professionals exactly how it ought to be done. He wrote the script too. Definitely a talent to watch.
Excellent Aussie crime drama thoroughly deserving of its across-the-board rave reviews. We repeat: go and see it.
