JANE was a real surprise, very well written, acted and directed. Loved all of the twists and turns, so you never really knew what was coming. Madeleine Petsch was extraordinary in her role, as was the director, Sabrina Jaglom, to make sure the movie moved along at just exactly the right pace. An interesting tale of how social media is infiltrated in high schoolers to the point of taking over their lives. Relevant and at the same time, the reality of what is going on in our society is sobering. This is so much better than most of what I am seeing these days, and really connects what high schoolers are going through to succeed to matter what and no matter what they have to do to get there. How can students these days just learn and succeed. If you aren't at the top of your game with social media, there is no hope. Go see this gem.
Seemingly perfect high school senior, Olivia, struggles with grief from the recent loss of a friend. When she gets deferred from her dream college she begins to spiral and experiences a series of increasingly frightening panic attacks. In an attempt to regain some sense of control, she embarks on a social media-fueled rampage against those that stand in the way of her success but, as things escalate, she is forced to confront - and ultimately embrace - her darkest impulses in order to get ahead.
