As a cinephile, it is common for me to try to find what's good in every movie. This one made that search a little harder. Aesthetically pleasing scenes with lots of close-ups coupled with an ethereal and current soundtrack were the only silver linings in an otherwise nonsensical and often muddled film. The story seemed unable to find, and stick to a central message; was it "Girl Power"? Or a statement on the apparent death of privacy to make room for the digital age.
In a nut shell, my high hopes for the movie were cut down by an inability to convey a message, and an ultimately confused storyline.
