Synopsis

Laura and Tyler are entering their 30s but are intent on keeping up the hedonistic lifestyle they've become accustomed to. Utterly confident and fearless, the two friends cut a swathe through Dublin, never letting a responsibility get in the way of a good time. When Laura falls in love with the handsome, and extremely disciplined, classical pianist Jim, she begins to question her choices, placing strain on the tight bond with Tyler. Adapted from the popular novel by Emma Jane Unsworth, Animals convincingly captures the affection, irritations and nuances of a long and firm friendship as it is forced to change.
