Digging Deeper  

In Thoroughbreds, 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.

Written and directed by Cory Finley in his directorial debut, Thoroughbreds stars Olivia Cooke as Amanda, Lily’s best friend who feels nothing; Anya Taylor-Joy as Lily, Amanda’s best friend who feels everything; Anton Yelchin (in his final role) as Tim, Amanda and Lily’s assistant; and Paul Sparks as Mark, Lily’s step-father.

The film will be released in the United States on March 9, 2018.
