Storyline

Lou and her best friend Chantal plan to get out of their isolated, run-down town and move to a city far, far away. When Chantal's unstable and possessive ex violates her during a night of partying, the girls decide to exact their revenge on him through a night of vandalism and debauchery. The consequences of their actions are devastating, threatening the girls' chances of ever leaving. The more Lou fights tooth-and-nail to save her friendship and hold onto her dreams, the more she spins out of control as she begins to realize that freedom will come at a high cost.

7 October 2019 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Are two lead actresses (Evans, Kurimsky) have very limited acting backgrounds, but did well, perhaps because their roles as older teens not happy w/pretty much everything except each other (well, most of the time) were natural fits. An indicator of the turmoil & trouble they go through w/parents, boyfriends as they try to escape town is dialogue in which four letter obscenties & similar words comprise 40% of the screen time; add in others (mostly males) it jumps to about 60%. Setting was low income; low education, gritty in your face. Ending not clear, but seems that leaving doesn't remove the source of the problems.
