ANIMALS
International Dramatic Features

There are maladjusted teens, and then there’s Pol, whose best friend is a walking, talking stuffed bear who sounds like HAL, the evil computer in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. (TED, this ain’t.) As Pol tries to unravel the meaning behind a strange series of circumstances involving his gay friend, a local girl’s death, a sexy new transfer student and his English teacher (Martin Freeman, THE HOBBIT), he finds that nothing in this weird, weird world is what it seems. Evoking the strange and sometimes sinister mood of DONNIE DARKO, AMERICAN BEAUTY, ELEPHANT and KABOOM, ANIMALS is like a mysterious dream you’ll want to have over and over again.
