Storyline

In suburban Connecticut, upper-class high schooler Amanda (Olivia Cooke) euthanizes 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..

Goofs

Near the end of the film Lily arrives for a lunch meeting in a white Tesla Model S that includes added sound from a gasoline powered car shutting off with a distinct putt-putt-putt. The only sound that should have been heard other than the tires on the road is the parking brake clamping the back wheels. See more »

User Reviews

 
Excellent Comedy
13 October 2018 | by wungchungSee all my reviews

Dry humor and absurdism all over. It condemns the new generation... but it condemns materialism, the rich and the older generation as much.

Watch it.
