UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Privileged teens, Lily and Amanda, rekindle their childhood friendship and secretly develop a shocking plan that nobody sees coming in the incredibly smart and suspenseful thriller, Thoroughbreds, arriving on Digital and the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on May 22, 2018 and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on June 5, 2018 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed by critics as “wickedly sharp, funny and suspenseful” (Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects), Thoroughbreds is an original dark comedy like you’ve never seen before and filled with remarkably talented actors including: Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One, “Bates Motel”), Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, The Witch), Paul Sparks (“The Girlfriend Experience,” “House of Cards”) and the late Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Star Trek: Beyond).

Chock full of quick wit and intense twists and turns; this film will leave viewers on the edge of their seat until the very end.

Childhood friends Lily (Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Cooke) reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily is now a polished, upper-class teenager at a fancy boarding school; Amanda has turned into a sharp-witted outcast with an attitude. Though they seem at odds, the pair bonds over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather (Sparks), and they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler (Yelchin) and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
