Synopsis: Matt and Owen are best friends who live in a world of endless movie references and hijinks. It would be perfect, if not for the cruel bullies at their high school who make their lives hell. While working on a movie for class, the lines between fiction and reality blur together in this horrifying look at high school bullying.
Preceded by the short film, “Feral”.
What the Critics Are Saying:
“This is a movie that you should seek out. It’s important, but also quite (dare I say it?) entertaining, and a fine first feature for a new director. Matthew Johnson is officially on the “one to watch” list.”
“The Dirties draws fascinating connections between the bullying phenomenon within the sociology of high school, the psychology of the victim/outsider, and the genesis of madness.”
