Storyline

After graduation, Bram gets his dream job at a local newspaper. In his mind he's the next Woodward (but he's probably more of a Bernstein). A year in, he realizes that maybe the paper business is no longer what he'd seen in the movies. Instead of investigative journalism, he is writing easily consumable Top 10 Lists - Best Hot Dogs in the City. Ten Ways to Tell You Grew Up in the 90s. After the paper is hit with another round of layoffs, Bram stumbles upon a potentially explosive story involving the city's controversial mayor. But he needs to beat the mayor's smooth talking aide, Kamal, to the punch. This could be Bram's big break - if he had any idea how to be a real journalist. Written by AnonymusB

Amateurishly Inept
6 March 2020 | by mja-78224See all my reviews

It is truly breath-taking an amateurish this movie is. With the many, and pointless, use of split screens, the director seems to be seeking a postgraduate degree from film school. The script seems unable to figure out what story it is trying to tell (and tells it poorly). Ultimately it is a pity party for millennials, without giving the audience any reason to join in.
