Focus Features’ released a new trailer for Thoroughbreds, which the studio picked up at Sundance, and stars Olivia Cooke as Amanda (she feels nothing) and Anya Taylor-Joy as Lily (she feels everything). The film also co-stars perennial TV staple Paul Sparks and the late Anton Yelchin in what marks one of the final performances.

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. 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.

Check out the new trailer for Thoroughbreds below:

The trailer quotes that the film is a cross between American Psycho and Heathers, summing up the tone and nature, which definitely skews more adult-oriented. Cooke and Taylor-Joy are both terrific young actresses, breaking out in a big way in Bates Motel and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and The Witch and Split respectively. Their on-screen chemistry will be one of the pleasures while watching Thoroughbreds.

Thoroughbreds come from first-time writer and director Cory Finley and made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January of this year. The film has built up some buzz on the festival circuit.
