The Cinematheque Reviews:
Animal Kingdom

This Aussie movie got a US release way back in August, but I am only just now getting around to it, having flown below my radar until now (and even now, my interest is mainly due to all the Oscar buzz surrounding Jacki Weaver's performance in the film).  Perhaps I shouldn't have waited but this movie ended up being well worth that wait.  A Scorsese-driven family crime drama that not only gives us Weaver's bravura performance (this ain't your grandma's grandma!) but a slew of chilling performances surrounding the possible Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner - or at least nominee.
