Storyline

In suburban Connecticut, upper-class high schooler Amanda (Olivia Cooke) euthanizes her crippled horse with a knife, resulting in charges of animal cruelty. Some time later, Amanda arrives at the home of the more popular and academically-inclined Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy). The girls had previously been best friends but grew apart after the death of Lily's father. They meet under the pretense of hanging out and having a casual tutoring session, but Amanda knows that her mother (Kaili Vernoff) has paid Lily to socialize with Amanda. Lily denies being paid, but Amanda, left emotionless by an unspecified mental disorder, is unfazed. Lily meets with Amanda again, this time voluntarily, and they rekindle their friendship..

Goofs

Amanda states that her therapist diagnosed her with anti-social personality disorder (among others). No one trained in psychology would ever diagnose a teenager with this disorder because all teenagers, technically, fit on the spectrum. Also, neither girl is a true psychopath as both show hints of remorse at times. See more »

Quotes

Amanda: [Amanda's voice reading her letter to the audience] I'm Honeymooner, and I'm dying. And I rise out of my body, and I'm staring down at our whole suburb, and time is speeding up.

Very Good Comedy
5 December 2018 | by Native-AnglophoneSee all my reviews

I love how the film has some good lines also, i mean the script. but is mostly lead by the actions and reaction. I love how this film, like the good ones, manages to pull out some wise words in the middle of the bizarre situation. It is as if human beings when in the middle of extreme situations somehow gets his or her reality exposed.
