This movie follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-images, and their love lives. This movie attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose - some tragic, some hopeful - as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.Written by

In giving the 9/11 assignment the teacher says that "Other than the attack on Pearl Harbor it's the only time a foreign force attacked anything on U.S. Soil." That is incorrect. Even if you do not include the Revolutionary War you still have the War of 1812 where the U.S. was invaded by the British and the White House and Washington D.C. was burned. See more »
I just wanna know... what you'd like in your eggs.
Don, we need to talk about this. I've made mistakes.
So have I. Oh yeah, so have I. Probably worse than you. I don't know, Helen. That's just it.
That's just... what's just it?
Well, we could sit here and tell each other everything we've ever done. Shit, everything we've ever thought. It might take a while. But yeah, we could clear everything up and go to sleep tonight with some pretty vivid pictures in our heads. Or you could just tell me what you...

We are all insignificant and don't know each other as much as we think we do.
This film shows the way the Internet changed the relationships people have in real life with others and with themselves. I didn't feel like the Internet was being blamed for those changes, but instead it just gave possibilities that people could take or not. This film is about how insignificant we all are, it makes you put things in perspective and analyze your priorities. Also, you end up having the feeling you don't really know other people even if you live with them.
The story centers around a group of teenagers and their parents. I liked the way they took stereotypes of teenagers and showed them in a different light, outside of high school. You have the cheerleaders, the jocks, the loners and they are all complex people instead of just good or bad. I got a "The Breakfast Club" feeling because you see them as people who deal with personal issues and are not as perfect as they might seem. When it comes to the adults, it centers around their romantic relationships and their problems.
In all the situations, the Internet functions as an scape from reality, a way to explore new things, being someone different and getting the kind of support they couldn't find in real life. That's why I think the portrayal of the Internet was realistic and not just plain negative. I think this film is a dialogue starter, a great film to be watched by parents and their children. It gets uncomfortable at times but if you talk to each other about your own experiences with the Internet you might end up knowing your family better.
