In “Hard Sell,” Hardy Buchanan (Skyler Gisondo), a poor high school surrounded by rich kids at his elite private school, struggles at home with his unstable mom (Kristin Chenoweth) and her prized dog Walter. When Walter gets sick and requires surgery, Hardy has to come up with fast cash. In a moment of desperation, he teams up with Bo (Katrina Bowden), a beautiful, aimless socialite, to develop a scheme to profit off of wayward, sexually-frustrated teens at their school. In addition to “baring herself” in front of much of the student body, she shares her wisdom with kids who have problems of their own. In this exclusive clip from “Hard Sell,” see Bo teach a group of prep school boys about breasts and oral sex.
