Deeply upsetting but in a way kind of relatable.. in an Ironic way
23 September 2013 | by (san diego, Ca) – See all my reviews

The story centers around two teenage boys Mark (Jamie Blackley) and John (Toby Regby). In the beginning of the film we learn that Mark is building an online relationship with Rachel (Jaime Winstone) in an open chat room for quite some time, while Mark delves deeper into the relationship he soon becomes introduced to others in the chat room as well whom include Kevin (Mingus Johnston), Rachel's abusive boyfriend and Janet (Liz White) who claims to be an MI5 agent. Upon Rachel's request Mark also befriends John, Rachel's younger brother and who Mark shares a class with. The two boys start getting drawn into this world of online chat rooms, which eventually leads to one stabbing the other. The audience is left with the question as too why and this is what Detective Inspector Sarah Clayton (Joanne Froggatt) is also trying to figure out through out the film. While she unravels the mystery of what led up to the incident, the evidence brings to light that Mark wasn't acting alone and that he was instructed to carry out an 'order'.

What really drives the film is the two actors Jamie Blackley as Mark was perfect for the role as the athletic popular jock as so was Toby Regbo as the awkward teenager that everyone at school picked on. The Movie plays up Marks fascination with his online relationships and the complications that come from it, you start seeing how much of an unhealthy effect it is having on his life outside of the internet and in today's generation i feel like in some sense some people can maybe relate too it. I loved the direction it was going and the pacing was good. To some it might start of slow but it works well with this type of film. The mystery elements adds to it and the atmosphere is nicely maintained til the end of the movie. Those unfamiliar with the story may appreciate the twists and those familiar will just need to be reminded it is loosely based on the true story but I for one was satisfied with the final product.

Overall I believe this movie is worth a watch if your looking for a mystery, drama, thriller, and a bit of a coming of age story.
