The ‘Animals’ stars talk about their buzzy friendship drama, finding meaning in life and party panic.

Dubbed ‘“Withnail and I” with girls’ by Caitlin Moran, Emma Jane Unsworth’s novel ‘Animals’ was published in 2014. Now she has adapted it for a film directed by Sophie Hyde (‘52 Tuesdays’) featuring Alia Shawkat as debonair rebel Tyler and Holliday Grainger as sidetracked writer Laura. Powered by MDMA (smashed-up cola Chupa Chups), cocaine (icing sugar) and gallons of white wine (apple juice), their combined energy captures the euphoria of wild nights out in Dublin, the repetitive nature of a lifestyle of coming up and coming down, and the private desires that can drive even the closest friends apart.

HAVE you ever, I ask Holliday Grainger, flashed a pianist in real life?

“Flashed a what?” the woman sitting opposite me in a suite in a London hotel asks, sounding maybe ever so slightly horrified.

“A pianist,” I repeat.

“Oh, a pianist.” She looks relieved. “Have I ever flashed a pianist? Nope, I don’t think I ever have. I’ve never flashed a pianist.”

She pauses, has a think and then adds: “I might have flashed a guitarist.”

Holliday Grainger is a 31-year-old actress with cheekbones, a Manchester accent, a full-throated laugh and a career that has already has the kind of sustain The Pixies’ Joey Santiago regularly coaxes out of his Les Paul guitar.

Starring Holliday Grainger (My Cousin Rachel, The Borgias, Patrick Melrose) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, TransparentAnimals tells the story of Laura and Tyler – two girls who like to party. Drink, drugs and general debauchery infuse their days while their careers and lives remain on hold. As they drift into their thirties, reality begins to bite, but Laura and Tyler will not be tamed so easily.

Set in Dublin, ANIMALS is a celebration of female friendship and the choices we make. It is an honest, unconventional and very funny snapshot of two very modern women.

We have tickets to an evening preview screening of ANIMALS in Light House on Wednesday August 7th with drinks from 6.15pm and film at 7pm. To win a pair for yourself and a pal, simply send your details to competitions@totallydublin.ie

The actress, 31, on mind reading on the Tube and playing a hard-partying Dubliner in new film Animals

How was it filming all the drinking scenes in animals? there are a lot of them!

Yes, there are. We were drinking a lot of apple juice so there were sugar highs. It’s kind of interesting to track that continuity of drunkenness. You’ve just got to remember what it feels like.

Were you inspired by any of your friends, naming no names?

Definitely. It’s all from aspects of every friendship I have or from people I see.

What kind of party person are you?

Obviously I’ve been through my stages, my blowout stage — haven’t we all? — but I’m pretty good now. One thing about getting older is hangovers are harder. And you’ve got to have a lot of stamina when you’re on a shoot. I can’t burn the candle at both ends like I used to.

The actor swaps period drama for partying hard in the film Animals, a subtle look at female friendship. She talks about playing drunk in Dublin and perfecting an Irish accent.

Holliday Grainger turned 30 last year in Dublin, while shooting her new film. In Animals, she plays Laura, a 32-year-old writer trying to balance the odd pressure of how she feels she should be behaving, and how she wants to behave. “I think there is a pressure on people,” Grainger says about reaching that age. “It’s – what are you doing with your life?” Though the film is set against the sort of dedicated partying that is outrageously fun, until it isn’t, Animals is also a subtle, unsettling look at the expectations placed on women by themselves, their friends, their families and lovers, as well as the world around them.

“It was this weird day,” Grainger recalls of her 30th. She and her co-star Alia Shawkat, who plays the more hedonistic Tyler, were filming a scene in which they visit Laura’s baby niece for the first time, nursing bone-crushing hangovers. “And they have an argument about joining the baby club or not.” Two of Grainger’s best friends, and their own babies, had flown out to visit her. “So on set were my best friends, their babies, and we were filming a scene about the choice between having a baby or not, and turning 30.” The director, she says, was excited about the synchronicity.
