This was a great movie with an interesting premise: wealthy Manhattan teens on spring break, looking to party and push the limits. The protagonist, a former one-percenter, lost his mother a year ago, her treatment wiping out the family fortune. He's still mourning her death and, though not a user himself, has become a supplier of marijuana to the rich kid circuit. The film illustrates throughout that money doesn't buy happiness for the wealthy kids either.
"Twelve" refers to the new, wild party drug, a drop of which will drastically change your reality. (Think "Limitless" sans intelligence.) A thousand bucks for a tiny vial.
Definitely worth a watch. My main motivation for reviewing here is that these "Rental Ready" listings are often completely blank--a shame, since this is one movie that deserves a look. Here is the other listing:
Edited to add: Narrated quite well by Kiefer Sutherland!

Amazon's editorial review:
When you’re this filthy rich, it’s hard to get clean. Hollywood’s hottest young stars deliver gripping performances in this suspenseful urban crime thriller. White Mike (Chace Crawford) is a young drug dealer straddling the mean streets of Harlem and the party palaces of upper Manhattan. Mike’s double life comes crashing down when a highly addictive new drug called “twelve” hits the streets, unleashing a shocking wave of passion and violence. Co-starring Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Emma Roberts and Ellen Barkin and directed by Joel Schumacher (Batman & Robin, A Time to Kill), this adaption of Nick McDonell’s acclaimed novel will leave you wired and breathless.
