“An uncommonly knotty and fiercely intelligent story of assault and blame in the social media age.” – The Playlist

After blacking out drunk at a party, 16-year-old Mandy awakens to a phone filled with notifications and a scandal sparked by confronting viral video footage. As the victimised high-school sophomore forced to puzzle together the pieces of her own widely shared assault, Rhianne Barreto (TV’s Hanna) is a revelation, turning in a stunningly internalised performance that’s equal parts devastating, vulnerable and uncertain – and making viewers step into the shoes of a teenager forced to live out a nightmarish experience that’s been made all-to-familiar by the online environment.

Expanding her 2015 short film of the same name, Pippa Bianco’s debut feature proves a blisteringly smart, thoroughly engrossing and unquestionably topical #MeToo-era coming-of-age drama, winning both acting and screenwriting awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

“Not only a raw portrait of a sexual assault survivor, it’s also an oblique but horrifying treatise on the various ways in which the internet has made us feel entitled to other peoples’ most private experiences.” – IndieWire
