Thoroughbreds is a 2017 American black comedy thriller film, written and directed by Cory Finley in his directorial debut. The movie is about childhood friends Lily and Amanda who 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.
While 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, 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, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
It is sad that a movie about one of the most respected female scientists, Marie Curie, flopped this bad. Radioactive had Rosamund Pike in the lead role while Anya played her daughter, Irene Curie. Likely, the COVID-19 lockdown hit its planned theatrical release so bad that it got little to no promotion. There are likely even some movie lovers who are not aware that it exists but it was distributed digitally in the United Kingdom by StudioCanal and by Prime Video in the United States between June and July 2020.
