They’re going to build a statue of us, immortalised in marble. Best friends Laura and Tyler live a hedonistic existence, partying their way to an early death through drink, drugs and sleep deprivation. They live life without limitations and do it arm in arm, eternal partners in crime. But when Laura falls for Jim, an ambitious and sober classical pianist, her and Tyler’s debaucherous double act is threatened by looming adulthood. Tyler wants to keep the party raging and does her best to drag Laura away from working on her well overdue novel and her new fiance. Grainger and Shawkat have electric chemistry as the two leads and give us a new audacious and brazen look at female friendship.
