The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and CAMP Rehoboth are co-sponsoring a screening of “Breaking the Girls” on Saturday, December 28, at 2:00 pm. The screening will be held at the upstairs screening room at the Movies at Midway.
Beauty and intelligence are a lethal combination in this sexy psychological thriller by director, Jamie Babbit (“Itty Bitty Titty Committee” and “But I am a Cheerleader”). The film centers on Sara, a twenty-something, ambitious, law student, who is supplementing her legal scholarship with a bartending gig. When fellow classmate Brooke sees Sara stealing from the tip jar, she ensures that the gorgeous strawberry-blond bartender is fired. On the same night, Sara meets Alex (“Madeline Zima,” “Californication”), a wild trust-fund beauty, who offers Sara a shoulder to cry on. As the friendship develops, the sexual sparks prove irresistible. As they discuss what to do about Brooke, Alex tells Sara about Nina, her gold-digging stepmother. When Alex casually suggests to Sara that all their problems would be solved if they killed each other’s enemies, Sara shrugs off the suggestion as a joke, but then, somebody turns up dead. Reminiscent of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Babbit has cooked up a plot so deliciously twisted and over-the-top, that once it’s in motion, it’s not clear where it’s going to lead. [Dir. Jamie Babbit, 2012, USA, Runtime: 83 mins. Not Rated]
