Focus Features has released the Thoroughbreds teaser poster, which you can view in full in the gallery below. The upcoming drama-thriller from writer/director Cory Finley features one of the final performances by the late Anton Yelchin.
Childhood friends Lily and Amanda 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, 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.
Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and The Dying Girl, Bates Motel) stars as Amanda and Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, The Witch) plays Lily in the film. They’re joined by the late Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness, Green Room) as Tim.
Thoroughbreds will open in theaters on March 9, 2018.
