About the Movie
Childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily is now a polished, upper-class teenager at a fancy boarding school; Amanda has turned into a sharp-witted outcast with an attitude. Though they seem at odds, the pair bonds over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, and they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Set in the opulent, WASP-y world of teen divas with killer instincts, Cory Finley's deliciously depraved satire skewers an empathy drain that he sees as sadly emblematic of modern life.
Fresh: Remember the name Cory Finley.
Fresh: Spending 90 minutes with a pair of teenage sociopaths may not sound like your idea of entertainment, but these two are a peculiarly nasty pleasure to be around, in part because they seem utterly indifferent to either your presence or your approval.
Fresh: Thoroughbreds was written and directed by first-time filmmaker Cory Finley, and for other amateurs it's a masterclass in squeezing everything you can out of a small budget.
Brilliantly suspenseful and tense
Thoroughbreds is uniquely captivating. It is extremely thrilling, and builds suspense in such a fascinating manner.
Unique and stylistic
Films like this are far and few between. Clever wit and pacing with some great dialogue. Left me smiling for days.
Gen Y's Heathers
This dark comedy was a great way to start off 2018. It's original, well written and directed, and superbly acted (particularly by Olivia Cooke.) The more I thought about the girls and their relationship after watching Thoroughbreds, the more I got out of it. It's more than what's on the surface...I think that you can say that about most young women.
