While certainly relevant and ultimately haunting, this satiric dram-com written and directed by Quinn Shephard is a difficult watch. Zoey Deutch turns heads as Danni, as a schlubby loser who dreams of getting some Insta likes when all of a sudden fame finds her. While lying about being on a trip to Paris, the city is attacked by terrorists, and she seizes on the opportunity to brand herself a survivor. Unfortunately, we all know where this thing is ultimately headed, which, to be honest, undercuts the effectiveness of the final product. It’s impossible to watch without a looming sense of dread that everything is getting ready to implode. And who wants to see that?

2.5/5 stars
