Animal Kingdom

Melburnian teenager (James Frecheville) is caught between his crime family and the cops trying to nail them in David Michod’s engrossing thriller.

Finely nuanced performances (Oscar-nominated Jacki Weaver is particular good as a menacing matriarch) and some subtle storytelling make for a memorable drama.


Good for: Michael Mann fans.
