Secrets and lies will change lives in this pulse-pounding psychological thriller.
Sullen, defiant and on probation following her release from juvenile detention, 16-year-old foster child Amy Anderson struggles with her new life in the countryside until Chloe, a friendly local girl the same age as Amy, drops by the family home seeking house-cleaning work and everything changes.
In this MIFF Premiere Fund-supported world premiere, writer/director Fin Edquist takes a sharp turn from his previous family and comedy scripts for Blinky Bill: The Movie and House Husbands, recruiting Samara Weaving (Mystery Road) and Sara West (The Daughter) to head up his tempestuous tale of two very different souls. Also featuring Felicity Price (The Gift) and Benjamin Winspear (The Babadook), and with a moody score from Warren Ellis (Dirty Three, Bad Seeds), Bad Girl offers a boldly dramatic twist on the femme fatale.
The film was produced by WA producer Tenille Kennedy (co-produced three chapters of The Turning,) in Perth featuring locations in the Swan Valley, Kalamunda and Serpentine.
WINNER: Best film 28th Annual Western Australia Screen Awards, 2016
