Animal Kingdom

A high quality powerful psychological crime drama, ANIMAL KINGDOM is a story about the battle between Melbourne’s underworld and the police.

The film tracks seventeen-year-old Joshua “J” Cody (newcomer James Frecheville), a troubled kid perilously caught between his own criminal family and Detective Leckie (Guy Pearce) a compromised cop who thinks that he can save him. J comes to realize that in order to survive he must write his own rule book, he must determine how the game is played, he must somehow choose his place in the cunning and brutal animal kingdom. ANIMAL KINGDOM is the debut feature of writer/director David Michôd whose previous short films have screened extensively internationally and in Australia, including the multi-award winning CROSSBOW. An AFI award-winning writer, Michôd also wrote the screenplay for this project.

Soundfirm was proud to provide foley and final sound mix facilities to ANIMAL KINGDOM.
