Review of Selfie

30 minutes

“Instafamous” Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (John Cho) to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. Loosely based on “My Fair Lady”, “Selfie” explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline—whether she ‘likes’ it or not. “Selfie” stars Karen Gillan as Eliza, John Cho as Henry, Tim Peper as Ethan, Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Charmonique, Allyn Rachel as Bryn and David Harewood as Sam.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Although a little extreme at times, I think this series brings to light some issues that are really important to focus on such as the amount of time we use on social networks and on our phones. Bringing together these problems as well as some light humour, I find this show quite enjoyable!
