Thoroughbreds is a 2018 dramatic, suspenseful- thriller, written and directed by Cory Finley. Co-Produced by Andrew Duncan, Nat Faxon, Jim Rash, Alex Saks, and Kevin J. Walsh. Superbly unpredictable, a razor-witted black comedy portraying good breeding goes bad in order to go break free.
The tense and tightly coiled trailer portrays that two teenage girls in Suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. In the process, they learn that neither is what she seems to be and that a murder might solve both of their problems. The movie constructs an attractive gun but hesitates on pulling the trigger. As a result, it often lapses into listlessness. Both of these girls are so endearing. Amanda is a provocateur. Lily is repressed and suppressed so wants to come out of her shell. Lily is inquisitive to Amanda’s deeds.
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.
On all levels, Thoroughbreds is a technical wonder. Finley penned a script driven by snappy dialogue, and it’s no surprise to learn that he originally intended the film as a stage play, but he also directs the shit out of this movie, sculpting a world of immaculate, marble-pillared extravagance and high society propriety. Finley builds remarkable tension with little effect, letting the strength of pace, editing and performance do the heavy lifting.
