Ben Mendelsohn steals the show. This man portrayed the most subtle creep I've seen on film in years. Animal Kingdom is a must see.

Animal Kingdom has been dubbed an 'Australian GoodFellas'. Director David Mich˘d isn't as flashy as Scorsese, but his portrayal of the violent downfall of a dysfunctional family of criminals shows that he's a master at building slow-burning tension.
