THOROUGHBREDS (15) – 2017 USA 92 min

Director: Cory Finley
Stars: Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy, Anton Yelchin

This contemporary noir offers a razor-sharp new twist on the ‘poor little rich girl’ genre. Teenager Amanda (Brit Cooke, unnervingly good) doesn’t feel any emotion, and is a locally notorious therapy outpatient after a veterinary misadventure. She and pampered Lily become unlikely friends, and Lily has a family problem to solve… Writer-director Finley is an outstanding talent, backed up by memorable editing, sound and score – and both comic relief and pathos from Yelchin in one of the final roles of his tragically short career.
