In this unconvincing tale about the dangers of social networking, overly gushing 17-year-old Tracy Spiridakos falls hard for a college undergraduate (Jon Cor) she meets online. But the sweet-talking hunk is not who he claims to be and it's not long before he embroils the A-grade student in his downward spiralling life. A sinister soundtrack and Cor's excessive snarling constantly emphasise that things will end badly, initially suggesting a "psycho boyfriend" plotline rather than the melodrama that ultimately unfolds. What little action there is proves poorly staged and emotionally limited, making even the climax lack tension and oomph. Clichéd characters and performances intensify the feature's limpness, with one-time
babe Alexandra Paul particularly underwhelming as Spiridakos's over-protective mum.
A teenage girl falls madly in love with someone claiming to be a college student, whom she meets on a social networking website, and keeps her internet romance a secret from her mother. However, she is unaware that everything he has told her about himself is a lie. Drama, starring Tracy Spiridakos, Jon Cor and Alexandra Paul.
