A story that revels in the messiness of life, and the many love stories it can contain. Based on the novel ‘Animals’ by Emma Jane Unsworth.
Laura (Holliday Grainger) and Tyler (Alia Shawkat) are soulmates. Thirty-something best friends and revellers residing in Dublin, they are ingrained in the fabric of each other's lives; dating, partying, drinking and living their life without limitations. American ex-pat, Tyler - a siren of drugs, alcohol and debauchery - lures aspiring writer, Laura, away from her long overdue novel as well as her new beau, the irresistibly handsome Jim (Fra Fee).
A tee-total classical pianist, Jim is the antithesis of Tyler and the world she and Laura inhabit, and with his presence the girls' hedonistic double act finds itself in jeopardy. Elevated by the chemistry and bold performances of its leads, ‘Animals’ takes a refreshingly frank and impressively ambitious look at female relationships.
