THOROUGHBREDS

Childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her CV; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, which have made her a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather (Paul Sparks). As their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler (Anton Yelchin) and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight. A beautifully shot and engaging dark-comedy thriller from first-time feature director Cory Finley. Full details.
