About the film:
After four college girls rob a restaurant to fund their spring break in Florida, they get entangled with a weird dude with his own criminal agenda.
“A lurid, luminous teen-bender movie, as ludicrous as it is stylish, and Harmony Korine’s best film in years.”
—Simon Crook for Empire Magazine
