Very timely, entertaining, high quality production
This smart film is extremely entertaining for kids as well as adults, and also manages to provide information to the viewer about the increasingly more common phenomenon of cyber bullying among young people. Everything about this production is top quality, from the script to the camera work, acting, editing, music, etc. The four main characters were introduced to the viewer as distinct and identifiable individuals. The actors are believable as their characters develop within the story line. The plot evolves into a "whodunit" with all the twists and turns of a detective novel. It leaves the viewer wondering whether the mystery will be solved. This is a must see for every middle school and/or high school student, as well as their parents, and everyone involved in education, including teachers, administrators, and counselors. Great story line in this first episode. It leaves the viewer wanting to see more. This production is about kids, and one of the many pressures kids face everyday among their peers, whether their parents and teachers know it or not. As technology advances, and digital communication grows through the internet, with instant messaging and personal web pages; and cellular phones, with text messaging and voice mail, kids need to learn how these methods of communication can cause severe consequences if misused. Adina's Deck has a unique way of pointing that out. This is a timely and excellent production, through and through.
