Matt Spicer’s smart satire offers a frequently hilarious deconstruction of lives lived through social media.
“The satire here works so well precisely because it is so accurately observed.” – The Independent.
“The film is very sharp on how young women use social media as self-actualisation, to create intimacy, and to bolster feelings of connection, as well as Instagram’s addictive, toxic qualities.” – The Observer.
