Movie review: Thoroughbreads

After the movie I knew that I was not the target audience. I didn’t care for Thoroughghbreds. I’m sure there was a point to the movie, or some message that I just didn’t get. It’s hard for me to critique the pacing and directing, since I didn’t understand what the writer and or the director wanted me to feel — however, the acting was very good. It was bittersweet to watch Anton Yelchin give a superior performance — which turned out to be his last; RIP Anton, you are missed. Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy played off each others strengths and weaknesses beautifully.

I found the movie itself to be uninteresting and boring. But for the three fine performances I just stated, I would have asked for my money back.

Grade: C
