Documentary on the way the internet affects people's lives. Director Beeban Kidron (Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason) casts her camera on teens, looking specifically at how technology shapes their social well-being, their cognition and their sexuality.

"Kidron interviews experts including Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, writer Clay Shirky, Microsoft researcher Danah Boyd, and the MIT Media Lab's Nicholas Negroponte. Her timely investigation also raises questions about the implications of data collection and who profits from it." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Says Kirdron: "I thought the cultural shake-up was something to embrace not fear — but all around me were young people attached to their phones like a third limb. Their social rules were different, their behaviour was different, and they seemed to think nothing of the fact that everything they ever did, thought, listened to or Googled was sitting in a cloud... somewhere."

It's unsettling viewing, and smartly sidesteps allegations of parental paranoia by talking directly to those "digital natives" whose lives are being transformed (for better and worse) by the web.

A dense and serious-minded study. The results feel like an intermittently fascinating springboard for something lengthier.
