With a title like Catfish and a simple poster like the above movie photo, probably not a lot of people are going to see this. I'm telling you, however, that it's intriguing. This movie is....like a train wreck. Strange, disturbing, but you can't look away.
The plot of the documentary Catfish, is a true story about a 20-something photojournalist and his online relationship with a family. The youngest member of the family, Abby, is a painter and sells her artwork for hundreds of dollars. She gets in touch with the main character, Nev, by sending him a painting of one of his photos in a newspaper. The connections are instantly made, and he falls for Abby's older sister, Megan, while simply texting, emailing, and sending messages and photos via Facebook. This movie is so bizarre, but at 90 minutes, it's an easy watch and the entire movie flies by because of what happens.
Watch it! It's so interesting. I would not let anyone under 16 watch it for sexual content, unless 14+ watch with an adult to explain some good lessons about the internet.
After you watch it tell me what you think! I'd love to hear your reactions.
