Though not credited as a remake, "Breaking the Girls" takes the basic premise of "Strangers on a Train," the Patricia Highsmith novel famously adapted to the screen by Alfred Hitchcock - I'll kill for you if you'll kill for me - and transports it to the modern day. Law student Sara (Agnes Bruckner) has had a run of misfortune brought on in no small way by a jealous classmate, costing her a job, a scholarship and a place to live. She also meets the rich, troubled Alex (Madeline Zima), setting in motion a series of events to solve all their problems.
