Matt Johnson’s THE DIRTIES is guaranteed to be one of the most talked about movies of the year. The film tells the story of two best friends, Matt (played by Johnson) and Owen (Owen Williams), a pair of misfit high school students who love making and talking about movies. Unfortunately, they are also the victims of systematic bullying at the hands of The Dirties, a group of classmates who constantly humiliate them. As the boys fantasize about revenge, THE DIRTIES becomes a richly layered portrait of a friendship confronted by school violence in all of its terrible permutations.
