When 17-year-old Joshua, J 'Cody (Finn Cole) moves in with his relatives on the Southern California coast, he is immediately drawn into their wild and sprawling life. But soon Josh finds out that all the luxury is financed by criminal activity and realizes that being part of the Cody family is fraught with a lot of danger, but also a lot of excitement. The series is based on the Australian feature film "Kingdom of the Crime" (Animal Kingdom) by David Michôd from the year 2010 (German premiere on 25.03.2011 on DVD). The lead role was James Frechville, in other roles were Guy Pearce, Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver and Luke Ford to see. Deliberately paced, unbearably intense, and so unpredictable that you won't want to tear your eyes away from the screen, Animal Kingdom is one of the most gripping crime thrillers in recent years, and a superior work of modern Australian cinema. Definitely check this out if you haven't already.
