Josh Biggs (Tyler Langdon, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) is a young man riddled with severe anxiety. When he agrees to be the subject of an experiment pertaining to the treatment of social anxiety disorder, he hopes it will be the end of his troubles... and a way to get closer to its pretty conductor, Aurora Pilar (Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival "Best Actress" winner, Laura Alexandra Ramos). Little does he know, he's about to endure the battle of his life. In a performance that skillfully juggles drama and comedy, Langdon leads a colorful cast in this poignant character study. Nerve is an "instant indie classic" that takes real risks.Written by
I had to write this review cause a few people I know who've seen the film are having issues concerning how the disorder is portrayed. This is a fictional story about one person dealing with his anxiety, social anxiety included. Although it doesn't pretend to be THE movie about social anxiety, I do think that most of the facts presented the film are true about the condition. My friend has anxiety issues and totally gets why the character makes some of the decisions he does. When he starts the treatment for SAD and then ends up 'seemingly' helped later on, I understood that months had past. And we learn quite quickly that he still has his problems. In fact, the whole movie seems to be about what NOT to do as a psychologist, which is why she's only a STUDENT. I definitely recommend this film! I only wish they had a bigger budget!
