Friended to Death (R)

Comedy 94 May 2, 2014

The film charts the extremes to which a desperate Facebook junkie will go in order to figure out who his true friends are. Laced with satire, this comedy tells the story of obnoxious Michael Harris. After being fired from his dream job and ditched by his best friend, Michael questions whether anyone would care if he died. So with the help of his ex-coworker Emile, Michael does what any social media-obsessed loner would do: He fakes his death online to see who will show up at his funeral. In just hours, Michael's fake death post attracts a promising 22 'Likes.' Eager to milk the prank, Michael convinces Emile to help him stage a faux memorial service. But as plans start taking shape, Michael's reality gradually implodes, forcing him to reconsider what it means to be a "friend" in today's hyper-connected world of social media.
