Ambitious in both the direction and editing, Lotus Eaters presents a world of youth, rich, spoilt and bored, where manipulation is a form of sport and self destruction seems inevitable. It resonates strongly with the character-world of Sophie Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' minus the crime but comes across artier in approach. 3 stars
