Movie Info

Childhood friends Lily and Amanda 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 resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

[Thoroughbred] manages to pull off the tricky feat of keeping the audience engaged with very disengaged characters

Tense and tightly coiled.

A razor-sharp horror/satire that plays like an update of Heavenly Creatures for the era of the Kardashians.

It's superbly unpredictable, moving fluidly into thriller territory and back again.

Finley ... combines a gift for tart and taut dialogue with a natural cinematic flair that heightens the drama.

It's like the beautiful sociopath child of American Psycho and Heavenly Creatures.
