Another documentary, I guess, that may or may not be real ... or at least it may not be completely real. On the surface, the film is about an online "relationship" that develops between a photographer and a young artist that develops into a whole lot more. He eventually decides to track the girl (and her family) down with interesting consequences.

The film is fascinating for a number of reasons: it is not particularly well made, and even if everything in it is real, it certainly has been manipulated by the filmmakers, but it still presents an interesting study of the differences between who we are online and who we are in real life.

I'd give it a "B" - interesting in the moment even if it is ultimately forgettable (like many things we see/do online!)
