‘Thoroughbreds’ Trailer: A Dark Plan is Hatched in Sundance Hit

Written by on October 17, 2017 


One of the most acclaimed films coming out of Sundance Film Festival earlier this year was Cory Finley’s Thoroughbreds. The black comedy, starring Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy, and the late Anton Yelchin, will finally get a release this spring, and now Focus Features have unveiled the first red band teaser trailer.

The dark comedy follows two estranged friends who return to each other’s lives. When the evilness of one of their stepfathers becomes too much to bear, they hatch a plan to enact justice. Teasing a style both behind the camera and on the page, it looks to be a strong break-out feature for Finley. Check out the teaser and poster below.

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.


Thoroughbreds opens on March 9, 2018.
