A North Carolina sheriff investigates the near-fatal drug overdose of an underachieving college girl, and uncovers many sordid details of her life before and during her descent into drugs and debauchery.
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
A lot of people told me about this movie before I finally got the time to see it. I really LOVED it! The story, all mixed up, is incredibly well directed. This is the story of a crime/accident/overdose that happened in a rich College School. A young brilliant poor student who tried to fit in with the rich chicks of her school... an overdose that first looked like an accident. That looked like a suicide. But did anyone mentioned that maybe it would be a murder? EVERYTHING in that movie was SIMPLY PERFECT, the confusion, that way they managed to keep you wondering, the music. Everything!! Of course, if all you do is looking for sex scenes, you'll be disappointed. There are erotic sex scenes but if all you do is looking for a big pair of boobs jumping out of the screen, i think you'd better look for something else... something more brainless. I'm telling you, New Best Friend is one of the BEST MOVIES I've ever seen!!!
