Animal Kingdom (2010)

()

Crime, Drama

Welcome to the Melbourne underworld, where tensions are building between dangerous criminals and equally dangerous police. The Wild West played out on the city’s streets.

Armed robber Pope Cody (Mendelsohn) is in hiding, on the run from a gang of renegade detectives who want him dead. His business partner and best friend, Barry ‘Baz’ Brown (Edgerton) wants out of the game, recognizing that their days of old-school banditry are all but over. Pope’s younger brother, the speed-addicted and volatile Craig Cody (Stapleton), is making a fortune in the illicit substances trade – the true cash cow of the modern criminal fraternity – while the youngest Cody brother, Darren (Ford), naively navigates his way through this criminal world – the only world his family has ever known.

And into this world arrives their nephew, Joshua ‘J’ Cody (Frecheville). Following the death of his mother, J finds himself living with his estranged family, under the watchful eye of his doting grandmother, Smurf (Weaver), mother to the Cody boys.

J quickly comes to believe that he is a player in this world. But, as he soon discovers, this world is far larger and more menacing than he could ever imagine. When tensions between family and police reach a bloody peak, J finds himself at the center of a cold-blooded revenge plot that turns the family upside down, and which also threatens to ensnare innocent bystanders such as his girlfriend, Nicky (Wheelwright).
