Whether arthouse or blockbuster, horror thriller or historical drama: Anya Taylor-Joy has not only been extremely versatile in recent years, but has also been mega-successful. So it’s clear that her future is bright — after films like X-Men: New Mutants and Last Night In Soho, as well as the Netflx hit The Queen’s Gambit, we’re about to see her in the critically acclaimed Viking — Epic The Northman . However, there is already an opportunity to take a look at one of the first highlights of her career: RTLZwei will be showing » Thoroughbreds » on April 10 from 11.40 p.m. for the first time on free TV.
You can expect a «nasty beast of a movie», as the FILMSTARTS review says, in which you will find Taylor-Joy, Olivia Cooke («Bates Motel») and Anton Yelchin , who died in 2016 at the age of just 27 («Star Trek») in one of his last roles. But if you don’t want to stay up all night before the start of the new week, you can of course also get the film for a small dollar on DVD and Blu-ray as well as video-on-demand:

In the end, of course, it doesn’t matter how you watch the film. Either way, a really strong, oppressive piece of suspense cinema awaits you, which is not only a thriller but also biting satire and ambiguous character drama. In the conclusion of the FILMSTARTS review, in which there are 4.5 out of 5 possible stars for the outstanding directorial debut of Cory Finley («Bad Education»), author Antje Wessels writes: Disturbingly cool, excitingly malicious and damn entertaining. Thoroughbreds definitely has what it takes to become a cult film.
That’s what Thoroughbreds is about
Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) were great childhood friends but grew farther and farther apart. After their lives took very different directions, the two found each other again in their teens — with devastating consequences.
