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.
In suburban Connecticut, upper-class high schooler Amanda (Olivia Cooke) euthanizes 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 »

Well, the shrink would sure like it to be. First it was borderline personality, than severe depression, now she thinks I'm antisocial with schizoid tendencies. She's basically just flipping to random pages of the DSM and throwing medications at me. But at the end of the day, I have a perfectly healthy brain. It just doesn't contain feelings. And that doesn't necessarily make me a bad person. It just means I have to work a little harder than everybody else to be good.

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.
