Suspence in Chapters!
12 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Oh, the tangled web one weaves. Director Cory Finley (primarily a writer) presents an engaging Chapter oriented thriller set in the upper class suburban neighborhood of Connecticut. Estranged grammar school friend Lily (Any Taylor-Joy ""Split" 2016) is hired to tutor troubled and discounted Amanda (Olivia Cooke "Me and Earl and Dying Girl" 2015). When Amanda opens Lily's eye's to her less than favorable family surroundings, specifically her overbearing father Mark (the amazing Paul Sparks from "Boardwalk Empire") and weak mother Francie Swift (Tv's "Outsiders"), the two take it upon themselves to remedy the situation. Enter Tim (Anton Yelchin "Star Trek"- in his final role before his recent death), a loser who regretfully becomes involved with the girls. The suspense in this film comes from the quiet writing and directing style Finley presents, along with a very effective eerie and calculating score by Erik Freidlander. While the film has a tendency to move slow at times, it only enhances the suspense. Taylor-Joy, with her perfect hair, complexion and wardrobe, is terrific as the upper class kid, where Cooke (with her unemotional gaze and distraught appearance) looks right through all she comes in contact with, and Yelchin embodies all things loser. "Thoroughbreds" is set to open in theatres in March 2018. I don't know if the film will catch on, so see it soon when it hits your local theatre. This film screened at the Palm Springs International Film Festival #PSIFF2018.
