"Animals" tells the story of a young couple that exist somewhere between homelessness and the fantasy life they imagine for themselves. Though they masterfully con and steal in an attempt to stay one step ahead of their addiction, they are ultimately forced to face the reality of their situation.
Shot in Chicago and the winner of Courage in Storytelling at the South by Southwest film festival, Animals is inspired by true events and was written by and stars actor David Dastmalchian (Dark Knight, Prisoners, Ant-Man). The cast includes Kim Shaw (She's Out of My League, I Just Want My Pants Back) and John Heard (Home Alone, Big).
"Dastmalchian and Shaw are thoroughly convincing both as vividly drawn, emotionally complex individuals, and as a couple inextricably bound by addiction and enabling. Among the well-cast supporting players, John Heard makes the most significant impact." - Variety.
"Animals presents an authenticity often lacking in films about drug abuse. It largely has Dastmalchin's screenplay to thank." - Austin Chronicle.
"It is a character study that reminds me of the first time I saw Gus Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy. And it could eventually herald the arrival of as important a talent." - Film Threat.
