Ariela on BLAME (2017) Tribeca 2017
The film focuses on the drama class. The teacher, played by Chris Messina, decides to have "the Crucible" as their show. He casts Abigail as the lead which causes her classmates to be jealous and thus bully her even more.
Abigail befriends her teacher, but what begins as a friendship soon changes.
This film reminded me of films like Heathers, Carrie, and Mean Girls. I enjoyed it, but it's been done before. There are some differences of course but it's the same idea. Also, while they kept referring to the incident that happened the previous semester, it was never disclosed what exactly happened which I found frustrating. The other part I found strange was not knowing where Abigail's parents were. They are shown in the beginning before she goes back to school but then never again.They're never home and there was no mention of them. Seemed odd considering Abigail had an "incident" that her parents were never around.
Overall, this movie was good, and impressive that it was done by someone so young, but another than that I would say you can wait to see it on Netflix or whatnot.
