Shows You Might Have Missed: Clique
Each week, we take a look at some of our favourite offbeat shows that might not have made it onto your radar.
A young woman in the throes of her first semester at University discovers a dark underbelly to campus culture when she is inducted into a selective and sinister social group in gripping thriller Clique.
Fresh out of High School and just weeks into their first year at University, life-long best friends Holly and Georgia are ready to take on the world together.
That is until Georgia is drawn into an elite circle of alpha-girls led by the enigmatic and enticing Academic Jude McDermid, leaving Holly out in the cold.
Yet while Holly is at first jealous of Georgia’s exclusive new inner-circle, her envy quickly turns to concern as she observes her friend’s behaviour becomes increasingly out of character.
Determined to rescue Georgia, Holly too must join the group where she finds a world of sex, lies and lavish parties that is corrupt to the core. But once she’s in, is there any way out?
From Skins writer Jess Brittain and starring a compelling young cast including Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Tomorrow When The War Began), Louise Brealey (Bleakhouse) and new comer Synnove Karlsen, Clique is a deeply addictive, deliciously dark exploration of the world facing young women as they make the leap from adolescence to adulthood, and the people all to happy to exploit their desire for parties and power.
