Story: Drama-thriller directed and written by Cory Finley in his directorial debut. The story centers on childhood friends Lily and Amanda (Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke) who reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into an 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 (Paul Sparks), 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 (Anton Yelchin), and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
