Mammals is written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem, Spectre). It follows Jamie Buckingham (Corden), a Michelin-starred chef who is on the cusp of opening his first ever restaurant when he uncovers secrets about his pregnant wife, Amandine (Kreiling).

Feeling lost, Jamie turns to his brother-in-law Jeff (Morgan) for help. In their search for answers, the situation becomes more complicated as the cracks in Jeff's own marriage to Jamie's sister Lue (Hawkins), begin to show. Meanwhile, Lue descends deeper and deeper into a fantasy world and Amandine pours her heart and soul into her violin playing. 

Mammals scrutinises marriage in the 21st Century and questions whether or not we can ever truly find the one? Butterworth describes Mammals as a relationship whodunit. He says, "I think most relationships do end up as crime scenes, don't they?"

After all, as the title suggests, we are all only mammals. Mammals screened at the London BFI Film Festival on October 7, 2022 and now you can watch Mammals online for FREE on Amazon Prime video, from Friday, November 11. Read our guide below to find out how.
