Movie Info

HONEYTRAP is the harrowing rite-of-passage drama inspired by a real-life crime of love, betrayal and murder in 2009. Featuring an international cast, the movie stars Jessica Sula (Skins, ABC Family's Recovery Road) Lucien Laviscount (Fox's Scream Queens), Naomi Ryan (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) and Ntonga Mwanza (LEAVE TO REMAIN). Girlhood and gang culture collide in HONEYTRAP as 15-year old Layla (Sula) contends with bullying at a new school by transforming herself inside and out. The teen's compulsive journey for love and acceptance soon becomes fatal in this cautionary tale based on headline news adapted by writer/director Rebecca Johnson.

    A captivating lead performance and an all too real situation elevate a somewhat underwritten script, but the director and actors are ones to watch.
