ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS:

Damn this was good! For a debut film, Corey Finley did a hell of a job writing and directing this. It’s unapologetically awkward at times, but very sharp, twisted, funny and tense! The plot is simple. Lily is a rich kid from Connecticut. Amanda is a slightly less rich kid from Connecticut with a slightly violent (but possibly justifiable) past. Amanda is also a total fuckin weirdo absolutely devoid of emotion. And Lily’s stepdad is a dick. What’s that thing they say about idle hands and the devil? Featuring the late Anton Yelchin’s final on screen performance, some superbly composed shots and spectacular sound design, this is very much worth your 90 minutes!
