Shedding light on an age old issue using Social Media
Directed and written by Pippa Bianco, based of the short story also directed and written by her.
Starring 21 year old Rhianne Barreto, playing the 16 year old lead Mandy, who was out with school friends partying and drinking and end up passing out and wakes up in the morning on her front lawn and a video appears on social media of guys having their way with her while she is drunk or possibly drugged.
Her caring parents are well played and they are being smart about how to handle it but at the core of it, in my opinion, the story revolves are consent and not taking advantage of a person when they are at a disadvantage. This is actually an age old issue but when new technology and especially with social media today we hear more about it.
No surprise then that the director also helped write an episode of Euphoria which also focused on consent as well.
The main cast was great and I imagine we will be seeing more from Rhianne Barreto as well in the future and I can't wait to see what Pippa Bianco has for us next.
The ending might not be what some would expect so make sure you watch it.
