Storyline

In suburban Connecticut, upper-class high school-er Amanda (Olivia Cooke) euthanize her crippled horse with a knife, resulting in charges of animal cruelty. Some time later, Amanda arrives at the home of the more popular and academically-inclined Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy). The girls had previously been best friends but grew apart after the death of Lily's father. They meet under the pretense of hanging out and having a casual tutoring session, but Amanda knows that her mother (Kaili Vernoff) has paid Lily to socialize with Amanda. Lily denies being paid, but Amanda, left emotionless by an unspecified mental disorder, is unfazed. Lily meets with Amanda again, this time voluntarily, and they rekindle their friendship..

Amanda: I think most of this country's moral norms comes from weird old Puritan bullshit. A human life isn't some sacred thing. There's nothing holy about a dick and a vaj getting together and spitting out a little dude.

Dark, sleek, deadly
15 March 2018 | by 2001ASOfanSee all my reviews

If you appreciate a sleek, compact, deliberately-paced, meticulously well-written, acted, and directed dark (and I mean dark) black comedy/drama (that leans more to drama than comedy), dripping with morose atmosphere, "Thoroughbreds" has arrived. There isn't a false or wasted moment between the two lead actresses right up to the quietly startling climax, and Paul Sparks' soul-sucking turn as a controlled--and controlling--stepfather lost in an obsessive-compulsive disorder of a life has you disbelieving it could be the same actor who also so effectively played the soulless theater critic in "The Greatest Showman" (although Mr. Sparks might want to try an all-out comedy next--he's in danger of getting typecast playing soul-deadening men--because he does it so well). Saw this on a rainy, dreary day, and it fit the day perfectly.
