Watch: Anya Taylor-Joy & Olivia Cooke Plot Murder In THOROUGHBREDS Trailer December 1, 2017 “The only thing worse than being incompetent, or being unkind, or being evil, is being indecisive.” New look at writer-director Cory Finley’s darkly comic film starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Olivia Cooke, Paul Sparks, and the late Anton Yelchin in one of the actor’s 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, 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.
