Sundance 2019: Corporate Animals

Corporate Animals finds a way to hysterically comment on workplace situations during a team-building exercise that just happens to go wrong. The film sucks us in with a commercial for the Incredible Edible Cutlery Company.  The company’s mission is to rid the planet of disposable plastic cutlery.  While it’s not a bad idea in theory, it’s easier said than done.  Run by CEO Lucy Vanderton (Demi Moore), she’s hoping that a corporate retreat in the New Mexico desert…
