Event Information

Laura (Holliday Grainger) and Tyler (Alia Shawkat) are two girls who like to party - drink, drugs and general debauchery infuse their days while their careers and lives remain on hold. As they drift into their thirties, reality begins to bite, but Laura and Tyler will not be tamed so easily.

When aspiring writer Laura (Holliday Grainger) meets the devilishly handsome musician Jim, sparks fly. As their relationship intensifies, Laura’s friendship with Tyler (Alia Shawkat) comes under pressure. Tyler wants to keep the party going, living a life without limitation as Laura begins to settle into her relationship with Jim. But nothing is ever that simple, and Laura begins to struggle with a more strait-laced approach to life.

A celebration of female friendship and the choices we make, Animals is an honest, unconventional and very funny snapshot of two very modern women.
