Bad girl Amy, 17, is given one last chance by her adoptive parents, who think Amy’s friendship with local girl Chloe is a step in the right direction. But when Amy discovers Chloe’s secret she finds herself fighting for her life, and for the future of the family she herself tried to destroy.
In this MIFF Premiere Fund-supported world premiere, writer/director Fin Edquist takes a sharp turn from his previous family and comedy scripts for Blinky Bill: The Movie and House Husbands, recruiting Samara Weaving (Mystery Road) and Sara West (The Daughter) to head up his tempestuous tale of two very different souls. Also featuring Felicity Price (The Gift) and Benjamin Winspear (The Babadook), and with a moody score from long-time Nick Cave collaborator Warren Ellis, Bad Girl offers a boldly dramatic twist on the femme fatale.
The film was produced by WA producer Tenille Kennedy in Perth 2015. A release date has not yet been set.
