For some viewers, the Australia-heavy nature of the film might actually be a bit of a stumbling block. Animal Kingdom” enjoys pops of violence and the burn of deliberation, keeping viewers guessing as Joshua faces cops and robbers, with no one able to provide the comfort he craves.

О проститутках, ЗППП и других сексуальных страстях

У меня обширный сексуальный опыт, и я этим не хвастаюсь. Будь у меня возможность, променял бы это всё на одного партнёра. Но так как с личной жизнью не заладилось, а секс я очень люблю, то приходилось изворачиваться.
