Assassination Nation had its world premiere in January 2018 at the Sundance Film Festival. Reviews of the film have been generally negative. Given that the movie hasn’t yet been released in theatres, all we have to offer is the trailer, which gives away enough information to suggest that the movie will feature plenty of horror, action, and comedy that is meant to be satirical.
This movie by writer-director Sam Levinson appears to be a typical teen comedy, but its central premise points to it being a dark comedy with a twist.
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 action on-screen, we simply hope that the film remains 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 a 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 the worst effects on our society.
