Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
High five if you’re under 25! We’re running a special promotion, with £5 tickets for THOROUGHBREDS if you’re lucky enough to be under 25 years of age.
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.
Starring Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy, Anton Yelchin, Paul Sparks, Francie Swift, Kaili Vernoff
Awards and Reviews

“This remarkable Sundance debut unfolds like “American Psycho” meets “Heathers” as directed by a young Park Chan-wook.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire
“A vicious satire of the upper class and its discontents, THOROUGHBREDS paints a dark picture of a generation that, because it has been denied nothing, has come to value nothing.” – Pat Padua, The Washington Post
“It’s superbly unpredictable, moving fluidly into thriller territory and back again.” – A.A. Dowd, AV Club
THOROUGHBREDS is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
