Synopsis

Facebook has become a part of everyday life - but how do we know our ''friends'' on there really are what they present themselves to be? It’s a troubling question central to this much-discussed US documentary, which follows the online exploits of Nev, a 24-year-old New York-based photographer. Asked for permission to paint his posted photo from an eight-year-old art prodigy in rural Michigan, he befriends her. The network soon broadens to include her attractive older half-sister Megan, a songwriter he begins a long-distance romance with. But when he decides to surprise her with an in-person meeting, he's in for a shock.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
