Ghosted by her twenty-something lover, middle-aged professor Claire creates a fake Facebook profile to keep tabs on him. But when her 24-year-old avatar “Clara” is befriended by her ex’s equally attractive roommate, superficial correspondence quickly escalates towards uncontrollable obsession.
Safy Nebbou’s twisty fable finds Juliette Binoche at her captivating best, as her character springs a seductive web of deception in the virtual world. More than a cautionary tale for modern lovers, this slippery character study grapples with the loneliness that reigns in our hyper-connected time.
