Bad Friends (and when to dump them)
9 August 2016 | by vendividiviciousssSee all my reviews

We all had friends in high school that we didn't think were particularly good people. Nevertheless, we clung onto them like life rafts amidst the storm.

Prep School plays like an 85-minute morality play devoted entirely to this concept, and what happens when those "convenient friends" become so volatile and dangerous that your social standing becomes secondary to preventing a tragedy (or in this case, multiple tragedies).

This isn't a new concept for a movie. Heathers and Mean Girls both covered this territory, but those films had satirical spins with larger-than-life characters, while this film plays out with a (mostly) straight face. First-time filmmaker Sean Nichols Lynch gets a little self-indulgent in places, like an English teacher's take-down of a student's essay (also entitled Prep School) that could be interpreted as a meta analysis of the movie itself.

Among the actors, Carly Schroeder and Ben Bellamy are the clear stand-outs as Kyra and Caleb, although they also have the most interesting material to work with. Taylor Lambert also deserves credit for effectively pulling off the toughest role of the film, narrowly navigating a mostly unlikable protagonist's journey from whiny do-gooder to wild-eyed insurgent. It's a difficult and thankless performance in the middle of much flashier heavies, so kudos to Lambert on that one.
