Film / New Best Friend

A 2002 movie directed by Zoe Clarke-Williams. Poor girl Alicia, attending a ritzy private university, falls in with three privileged and amoral students, led by Hadley. When Alicia suffers a near-fatal overdose at a party, the local acting sheriff is called in to conduct a "discreet" investigation.


The movie provides examples of:

  • Daddy's Girl: Hadley, although her father has started withholding financial help until she improves her grades.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Alicia. One of the first things we see her do is cry for her financial aid adviser. It's all downhill from there.
  • Psycho Lesbian: One of the suspects is Sidney, whom Alicia manipulated into sleeping with her. Subverted in that she isn't the killer.
  • Yandere: Hadley who acts out when Alicia makes a move on her boyfriend but only really loses it when Alicia steals her father's affections, although other characters have elements of this.
