If you can’t trust drug dealers, who can you trust? Unfortunately for these upper class youths, their drug dealer turns out to be a liar who is slipping them heroin. You might wonder how you can confuse heroin with other drugs, but since these kids start out with painkillers and then graduate to shoving any type of pill they can get their hands on in their mouths (even, presumably, Flintstones Vitamins!), they aren’t going to stop and look at the pill to see all the heroin oozing out of it. Okay, I don’t know what heroin pills look like, but perhaps they are liquicaps? Gel-caps? Whatever the case, there’s also love going on, guaranteeing Perfect High being filled with lots of perfect teenage angst and you can bet someone will be dead or wish they were by the time the credits roll. Most of you know that as why we watch the Lifetime flicks!
From the trailer there is a dance group, teens freaking out, taking random pills, and of course some idiot passes out while in a car, causing the teen actresses to scream and become dramatic scene chewers. It will be hilarious and awesome.
Inspired by a true story. A star high-school dancer starts using prescription painkillers after a knee injury sidelines her. Feeling isolated, she is adopted by a popular group, which leads to sharing her pills, having regular “pharm” parties and falling in love for the first time. But when her prescription runs out, they resort to buying pills, only to have their lives forever changed when they discover their classmate dealer has been selling them heroin under the guise of being a cheap Mexican painkiller.
Perfect High stars Bella Thorne (The DUFF), Israel Broussard (The Bling Ring), Daniela Bobadilla (The Cheating Pact), Ross Butler (Teen Beach 2), Matreya Fedor (My Mother’s Future Husband), Jasmine Sky Sarin (A Sister’s Nightmare), and Cassidy Alexa (pretty much just this movie). It’s directed by Vanessa Parise (PopFan) and written by Anne-Marie Hess (usually credited as an editor, this is her first full feature as a writer)
Perfect High premieres June 27th on Lifetime!
