Animal Kingdom

Unknown-1Just watched the first episode of Animal Kingdom on Netflix with Ellen Barkin.  Scott Speedman, Finn Cole,  Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary, Molly Gordon and Daniella Alonso are wonderfully cast as dynamic players in the criminal Cody Family.  And Ellen Barkin is phenomenal.   She is breathtakingly inappropriate.  Ruling over her family with a borderline incestuous finesse, Ellen Barkin as Janine Cody ‘Smurf’ is a beguiling, honest and disturbing matriarch.  The intrigue, primal urgency, criminality and dark intrigue of this series is fully realized in Ellen Barkin’s Smurf.  If you want to see someone capable of startling transformation, watch her.
