First premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year, Assassination Nation has earned mixed reviews from many reviewers. Considering the film is yet to hit theaters, we have nothing much to share, but the trailer that gives away enough hints of a film with much horror, action and comedy in terms of satire.
Writer-Director Sam Levinson’s film looks like a usual teen movie, but its core plot suggests it as a dark comedy with a spin and madness all-around.
Assassination Nation – Plot
High school senior Lily and her group of friends live in a haze of texts, posts, selfies and chats just like the rest of the world. So, when an anonymous hacker starts posting details from the private lives of everyone in their small town, the result is absolute madness leaving Lily and her friends questioning whether they’ll live through the night.
Going by the plot and so much happening on screen, we simply hope that this remain a satire – otherwise the purge-kind setup and much bold & stylized way to say the dangers of social media will go in vain.
We would certainly love to watch this to understand the maker’s vision in presenting few most important issues of personal privacy, mob rule or mob lynching and the downside of social media, where any discussion can go anyway and can make anything that could have worst effects on our society.
