Kill Your Friends
As the twentieth century breathes at its last, with Brit-Pop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox (Hoult) slashes and burns his way through London's music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit—fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of drugs and alcohol—Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast, the hits are drying up, and the only way he's going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of "cut-throat" to murderous new levels.
