“ANIMAL KINGDOM” IS A BLEAK BUT RIVETING MOVIE EXPERIENCE
Sometimes you see a movie and you can’t get it out of your mind. Since most movies are totally forgettable, this is a good sign. After a brain-numbing summer of action/special effects films, the Australian movie “Animal Kingdom” is a startling revelation. The plot is brilliant and unpredictable with surprises around every corner. It’s the story of a teenage guy trying to survive in a family of criminals. He doesn’t know who to trust or where to turn. It’s dark and grim and gritty and you won’t walk out laughing, but this is a movie you will talk about for a long time.
