*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Judi Dench has turned 80 last year and is easily among the most famous actresses of her generation. Here she stars in a little 12-minute movie, in which she plays a woman who, together with a friend, is experiencing the mysterious world of online communication. She talks to a guy on Facebook and after some struggles and waiting, the two finally meet up. Foggin and Croucher, the two men who wrote and directed this little movie, have worked on some pretty popular movies and television series in the past already, but unfortunately, experience does not really help in order to make this one here a good movie. I found it fairly underwhelming. It's very much in the tone of Dench's "Best Marigold Hotel" movie or "Downton Abbey", so if you enjoyed these, maybe you should check out this film here as well. Or just if you are a huge Judi Dench film. Tom Hiddleston is in here as well, but really only very briefly at the end. All in all, not a memorable work. thumbs down.
