It's a labyrinthine portrait of various navel-gazing suburbanites – teenagers lusting for fame, adulterous parents, newly single adults putting their toes into the dating scene, computer game-obsessed jocks, anorexic hormone-driven girls and one chillingly over-protective mother, their lives confoundedly problematic as they relentlessly look to their iphones and computers for the help they need in conducting their lives. Text messages are regularly strewn across the screen as this is the only way most of the characters can interact.
It's an up-to-the-minute premise for sure, but might well seem dated maybe a couple of years from now. The cast are all gifted players but their roles are too thinly written to make us intrigued enough or care enough about their respective plights. There's no real meat to any of these characters, they exist in a kind of suburban vacuum that is unenticing and unpersuasive. Another dud I'm afraid.
