An adaptation of Dangerous Liaisons, Cruel Intentions tackles the seductive betrayal of young, rich and deviant youth in New York.
Rich and bored step-siblings Kathryn and Sebastian get a strange satisfaction from ruining the social lives of those unfortunate few who surround their social circle. One such victim is the young and naive Cecile who they seem hell bent on destroying for no real reason other than mild satisfaction. It isn’t until a new young lady named Annette comes into their life that a bet made between the two that he can take her coveted virginity turns dramatically complicated. Taking on a near soap opera style, Cruel Intentions is the sexiest of the 1990s teen-drama films.
Before the film, we’ll have a live pre-show drag and burlesque performance hosted by Miss Malice (Switch n’ Play) with special guests Mauve, Zenobia and Divina GranSparkle! Show starts at 8:35, so don’t be late!
