Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
In suburban Connecticut, upper-class high school-er Amanda (Olivia Cooke) euthanize 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..
The film has remained in limbo for almost 2 years. Production lasted from May to June 2016, and the film wasn't theatrically released until March 9th, 2018. This was due to a long and extensive festival circuit in 2017, not to mention post-production and marketing. See more »
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 »
You should be honest about your feelings. Otherwise it starts coming out in passive-aggressive ways.

I love how the film has some good lines also, i mean the script. but is mostly lead by the actions and reaction. I love how this film, like the good ones, manages to pull out some wise words in the middle of the bizarre situation. It is as if human beings when in the middle of extreme situations somehow gets his or her reality exposed.
