Laura (Holliday Grainger) and Tyler (Alia Shawkat) are soulmates: 30-something best friends and revellers residing in Dublin, they are ingrained in the fabric of each other’s lives; dating, partying, drinking and living their life without limitations. When Laura meets Jim, a tee-total classical pianist, the girls’ hedonistic lifestyle finds itself in jeopardy. While Tyler wants to keep the party going, Laura, buoyed by Jim’s restraint and stability, starts to emerge from her years of partying, searching for her place in the world. At once both a celebration of female friendship and an examination of the choices we make when facing a crossroad, Animals is an honest, funny, edgy, unconventional and bittersweet snapshot of modern women.
