Netflix is the go to place for every teenager. And that’s understandable because it’s literally the online streaming platform that has the best teen dramas. From the dark witchy adventures of Sabrina to the newest release The Society, Netflix’s teen dramas have it all. They’re funny, relatable, and always have the right amount of angst. Obviously, the eye candy is entertaining as well! Another one of such teen drama, Trinkets, is coming out on the streaming platform this June and we’re here to tell you all about it.
Trinkets is Friendship Through Shoplifting
The trailer for the new series has us all intrigued and waiting for what really is going to happen. In the trailer we see three girls, all very different from each other, sharing one similar hobby. The three girls are kleptomaniacs and then end up meeting at a support group for kleptomaniacs. This is where the twist comes in. You’d think they’d help each other overcome stealing. But instead they get into a competition to see who is the best at shoplifting! But don’t despair, Trinkets is going to have its fair share of teen drama, redemption, budding friendships and sweet romances.
This new teen drama is an adaption of a novel by Kiwi Smith. The author has written the screenplays of 10 Things I Hate About You and Legally Blonde. So, we can rest easy because Trinkets is going to be absolutely amazing!
Kiwi sat down with teen vogue for an interview and she talked about how Trinkets is in no way trying to glamorize and romanticize shoplifting. She said,
A lot of young women are perhaps drawn to it because they don’t have enough control and power so it’s a way to seize it even if it’s misguided. It’s a way to fill some holes that you have inside with possessions. I really wanted to get into what are the things that make you susceptible to this addiction. It’s a real thing. We wanted to explore all of these things in a way as earnest and true as possible.
Shoplifting is the starting point for the show. So don’t go in expecting elaborate heists. Trinkets, at the core, is basically a coming of age drama that centers around the friendship between the three girls.
