This was the last performance by talented Anton Yelchin and the main reason I wanted to see the film. Although he’s good as usual (and dark, which is a bit of a departure) he only has a supporting role. The story revolves around 2 mean teens, disaffected girlfriends who decide to kill someone. However, the dialogue is super-slow and crammed with extended pauses. There’s certainly a dark touch pervading every moment, but it fails to engender much empathy or suspense. I found the whole thing dreadfully dull, wishing for snappy dialogue or a story surprise. (It was, appropriately, dedicated to Yelchin.)
