REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film ominously conveys a world of too much information but too little communication, where people have become slaves to glowing hand-held devices that were designed to make life easier but have made it busier and more complicated..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..worst-case scenarios for our forays into chat rooms and social network sites are laid bare, as are the illegal and immoral contours of the digital landscape in this well-acted dramatic thriller..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..working with a script by Andrew Stern, is good with the details, and he gets strong performances from his cast in this, his debut feature..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
