4. You (TV series 2018-present)
The first season of You is set in modern-day New York City. Joe Goldberg, the main character, is a serial killer and former bookstore manager.
He began to develop an extreme, poisonous, and delusional obsession. The goal is to pursue a girl’s love and bring her excessive feelings with great help from social media.
You explored the dangers of social media stalking and culture, emphasizing the lack of digital privacy. Most likely this film will make you delete your social media accounts forever, or at least make you think twice before sharing personal information on social media.
5. The Circle (2017)
Here’s a film that shows you how transparency and privacy can be taken to a new level. Released in 2017, the main cast of The Circle includes Emma Watson (who plays Harry Potter), Tom Hanks (who plays Sully), and John Boyega (who plays Star Wars: The Force Awakens).
Mae, played by Emma Watson, landed a job in IT at the world’s largest, most powerful technology and social media company. Convinced by the company founder, he agrees to participate in experiments that break through the boundaries of privacy, ethics, and ultimately about his own privacy.
6. Disconnect (2012)
We can all understand how the internet is having an increasing impact on the lives of everyone. Released in 2013, the film Disconnect features three different storylines.
First, about a victim who suffers from cyberbullying. Then, about a lawyer who communicates constantly through his cell phone, but can’t find time to connect with his family. Then, about a couple whose secrets were revealed online.
The interesting aspect of this film is that all conflicts and relationships originate from laptops, iPads and smartphones. Watch Disconnect to find the gap between online and real-world interactions.
