Shit Kids

Director: Kyle Dunnigan

Institute History

  • 2017 Sundance Film Festival


Seventeen-year-old Cecily and her dim-witted boyfriend, Cole, are the products of two earth-shatteringly boring sets of parents. Raised to feel entitled to everything she desires, Cecily utilizes her superior IQ and empty promises of sex to entangle Cole in precarious and often illegal situations. When she doesn’t get her way, a devious plot is hatched to end the lives of their humdrum parents. It’s a Romeo and Juliet tale, if Romeo and Juliet were total assholes.

Screens with Independent Pilot Showcase.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
