Anya Taylor-Joy & Olivia Cooke Are THOROUGHBREDS In First Trailer For Sundance Hit

First look at the upcoming thriller.

Two of cinema's most talented young actresses - Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Split) and Olivia Cooke (The Limehouse Golem, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) - play a pair of upper-class friends who enlist a hustler (the late Anton Yelchin in one of his final roles) to take care of a shared problem in writer-director Cory Finley's Thoroughbreds.

The movie was one of the most well-received at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and is scheduled for a UK/ROI release on March 9th 2018.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
