The definitive Britpop movie will probably always be Trainspotting (with apologies to style-inspiration grandaddy Quadrophenia). But a new black comedy/thriller called Kill Your Friends aims to unseat it. As The Playlist reports, the movie takes place during the high mid-’90s era of the genre, and it stars Nicholas Hoult, from Mad Max: Fury Road and the fun-as-hell British TV show Skins, as a ruthless A&R man on the prowl through the scene. James Corden and Craig Roberts also star, and the TV veteran Owen Harris directed it. Watch a trailer below.
The movie will screen during this fall’s Toronto International Film Festival.
