Today Focus Features has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming drama-thriller Thoroughbreds. This film features one of the final performances of the late Anton Yelchin.
Just looking over the trailer, there is a definite dry wit and dark humor that I think will draw audiences in. It’s also immensely fun to see Olivia Cooke play against type.
The official synopsis for the film is 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.
