  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Is Amanda really the sociopath? Is it actually Lily?
      • Amanda does plot to kill Mark, but she never suggests or seems willing to frame is that a Moral Event Horizon for Lily? Lily also rejects Amanda (possibly...) to uphold the masquerade, whereas Amanda seems perfectly willing to be in prison for a murder Lily committed. Lily, on the other hand, is only concerned with totally superficial things. On the other hand, does Amanda rationally know that she belongs in a hospital?
    • Advertisement:
    • Can Amanda actually feel? Is she misdiagnosed or misunderstood by the medical community?
      • She genuinely seems much more affected by her and Lily's friendship by the end. And, when she drinks the drugged drink at the end, is she hurt by Lilly's betrayal? Resigned? Just because Lilly seems capable of deeper emotion, she actually demonstrates that she is even more willing to repress and be cruel.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Anton Yelchin's untimely death in a freak accident only two weeks after he finished filming this movie makes some of Tim's dialogue unbearable. Mainly his comments about how this is his time, and soon enough, he'll be on top of the world.
  • Les Yay: Amanda seems especially disinterested in boys, while Lily comes a close second. They do, however, have a very deep relationship.

How well does it match the trope?
