Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a dark comedy/thriller aimed at a young adult audience, particularly females. Fans of Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy will definitely enjoy while the late Anton Yelchin has a key supporting role. Constant language, violence, and dark subject matter make the film definitely not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ...one of the more daring independent releases of the past few months and is worth seeing as much for its subdued thriller aspects as for its warped sense of humor, which permeates the character building and dialogue. The ending may feel abrupt but problems with the final scenes don't diminish the pleasures to be had from all that precedes them.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "Thoroughbreds” may reach the finish line a little quickly and neatly, but at least it never turns soft and nice. Finley remains true to his vision, and it's a thrilling spectacle to behold.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good First-time director Cory Finley, adapting his play for the screen, takes a slow-burn approach that could leave some viewers impatient. But hang on: He has some surprises in store, letting us hang with the girls before making rash judgements.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average This doggedly aloof tone highlights the central irony of Thoroughbreds: Thoroughbreds is a film about the disastrous perils of too little empathy, but it never evinces much of its own.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) 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.
