Movies at Macquarie – Animal Kingdom [Formal Event Name]
[Event description] The critically acclaimed Australian film Animal Kingdom explores the story of Joshua ‘J’ Cody and his entry into a world of armed robbery, drugs and murder. Through his eyes we see the relationship between a mother and her sons – violent criminals wanted by the police.After the movie
Hear from Vince Hurley an associate lecturer in Macquarie’s Centre for Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism. Hurley will canvas the reality of issues such as:

  • Whether what is portrayed in Animal Kingdom is reflective of the dynamics of a family involved in a life of crime
  • Does a mother, or other family members always know what their children are doing?
  • How far should or do family members go to protect each other from the police?

Hurley joined Macquarie’s teaching staff four years ago after serving 30 years in the NSW Police Force. His outstanding knowledge in a vast range of policing areas and invaluable experience make him the only staff member who has been shot at, stabbed, negotiated with armed offenders, or purchased drugs undercover.
