Good breeding gone bad - watch the official trailer for Thoroughbreds

The trailer for director Cory Finley's debut feature, Thoroughbreds, has been released by Universal. The film has been receiving great reviews on the festival circuit and if the sharply edited trailer is anything to go by, it looks like we'll have one dark comedy on our hands next year.

Childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast.

Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark (Paul Sparks), and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim (Anton Yelchin), and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

Thoroughbreds is released in UK cinemas on March 9th 2018.
