Did You Know?


Maya Hawke had some fun promoting the film by giving her Instagram followers a tour of Loyal Studios while walking its hallways naked, though she didn't show anything. The 5-foot-9 actress is shown in the short video clip holding a blue blazer over her front and holding it together with one hand at the back, covering her butt. She also wore body glitter. After the tour, she admitted she was drunk. See more »

Brilliant acting but a story full of clichés
1 November 2020 | by darioz-99232See all my reviews

First I gotta say Andrew Garfield is marvelous in this movie. His mimic and his movements are crazy and you're buying every part of his character. Maya Hawk is also good and Jason Schwartzman is solid as always. But now to the movie: the first 30 minutes started off great and I had very high expectations for the rest of the movie. It was funny, interesting and most importantly kind of making fun of influencers and social media. But then, the movie turned in another direction and was only filled with stereotypes like a 2000s high school movie. Suddenly there was only love and jealousy on the one hand, and on the other heartlessness and making big bucks. The movie could've definitely turned out better, but Andrew Garfield safed the day with his acting!
