Storyline

At fancy, private Colby University, in the North Carolina hills, a drug overdose puts a senior near death. The school administration calls in the acting sheriff to conduct "a delicate and discrete investigation" - a whitewash. The more he digs, the more evidence he finds that the overdose may have been attempted murder. In flashbacks that parallel his investigation, we see Alicia, a scholarship girl worried about her grades, gradually pulled into the social life of three rich and amoral young women, led by the blond Hadley, a femme fatale. Before the investigation ends, we've met boyfriends, a drug dealer, Alicia's mom, Hadley's dad, nurses, doctors, and an orderly. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great movie!!! I love Mia Kirshner
2 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a surprisingly wonderful, but tragic movie. Mia Kirshner is an underrated actress and a gorgeous woman to boot. The entire cast turned in good performances. Mia Kirshner has always surprised me in her roles. It doesn't seem to matter what she is portraying. It can be a drug addicted college girl that is just trying to fit in with everyone else. It can be a highly paid free-lance assassin on TV's "Twenty-four". Does anyone remember the movie she made in which a man is fantasizing about her being a stripper, but I believe she was actually just a girl next door type person? I only saw the last few minutes of it and I have forgotten the title entirely.
