Kill Your Friends

Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) is Steven Stelfox, an  A&R man in the London music industry who is lying and backstabbing his way to the top – powered by drugs, sex, alcohol and his own greed. When Stelfox’s career faces a slump, he is forced to kick his ruthless work ethic up a notch.

Based on the novel by John Niven, who drew upon his brief music industry career, during which he passed on the opportunity to sign both Coldplay and Muse.

Anchoring the pungent 1990s ambience is Mr. Hoult, easily oozing cool charisma.

Nicholas Hoult does his best to bring Niven's weapons-grade scumbag to life, in a film hobbled by amateurish acting and absence of production value.
