Animals (2019)

Holliday Grainger (My Cousin Rachel) and Alia Shawkat (TV's Arrested Development) are drinking buddies at a crossroads in life in this dramedy based on Emma Jane Unsworth's novel.

"Would-be writer Laura (Grainger) and her free-spirited bestie Tyler (Shawkat) share a messy Dublin apartment and a hearty appetite for booze, Molly, and one-night stands. Yet when Laura falls for Jim (Fra Fee), a charming but straitlaced classical pianist, Tyler worries that the party may soon be over ... Animals explores the long hangover between adolescence and adulthood through a bittersweet tale of two friends growing up and growing apart." (Sundance Film Festival)

Well-observed but slightly lacking show of youth in revolt.

A highly effective and satisfying journey of self-discovery not because it offers up easy answers or even a perfect happy ending, but rather because it so thoroughly taps into the chaos of reality.

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?

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

Grainger is a revelation and Shawkat a rebel in this delightfully defiant celebration of women's imperfections. 
Stick with them through the chaos and you'll be rewarded with an utterly electric tale of female friendship.

Flawed but interesting, kept upright by the steely core of Holliday Grainger's performance.
