Critic Reviews for Animals
It's a tribute to [director] Sophie Hyde's work that these two gals, with tinkling white wine glasses and cackling laughter, become fully engaging women on screen.
Animals treats its subjects with patience and generosity.
Grainger, typically, yet again, is heroic and delivers everything she can, including myriad expressive looks, some nice physical comedy and a pitch-perfect Dublin accent in an admirable attempt, ultimately fruitless, to breathe life into a corpse.
Something, alas, has happened to Unsworth's original vision; it's become slighter and more one-sided.
Grainger, so promising for so long, nails this performance with everything she's got, and deserves to have it noticed.
