Animals Reviews

September 10, 2019
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.

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.

Booksmart and Lady Bird seem masterpieces in comparison. (The first nearly was one.)

February 8, 2019
Refreshingly frank and unautocratic about sex, drugs and the uniquely female desire to be free of judgment, Animals dares to love the pair of imperfect friends that lead the way.
January 30, 2019
Hyde has forged a wonderful, utterly lived-in film about two women at a crossroads, one that attendees should be breathlessly, excitedly discussing around town, urging everyone else to see immediately.

Why does the end result feel so inert and contrived, even if it's exceedingly pretty to look at?
January 29, 2019
It revels in the messiness of life, and the many love stories it can contain.

Hyde's generous, freewheeling film is a pleasingly disorderly addition to the still-underpopulated ranks of female friendship studies...
