A Great Criticism to the Excessive Use of Social Media
20 April 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a near future, people are rated by the others through the cellphone facilitating life or not depending on the personal rating. Lacie Pound (Bryce Dallas Howard) is obsessed by her high score and is very polite with everybody expecting to increase her rating. Her brother Ryan (James Norton) does not care and has lower rating irritating Lacie. When her best friend Naomi Jayne Blestow (Alice Eve) invites her to be her maid of honor in her wedding, Lacie foresee the chance to increase her rating and prepares a speech. When she arrives at the airport, she learns that her flight was canceled and she does not have enough rating to get a seat in another plane. She has a problem with the attendant and she is ranked down in the beginning of her downfall to a journey where she will learn the importance of being free to speak and act.

"Nosedive" is a witty episode of "Black Mirror" with a great criticism to the excessive use of social media mostly by the younger generations. Bryce Dallas Howard has an awesome performance in the role of a young woman obsessed by her personal rating that learns the importance to be free of the excessive use of social media. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Nosedive"
