Nowadays it is important to be increasingly careful about the way we use technology, how often do we not hear stories from people who have had some private content released without consent?
Share, the new feature film produced by HBO, explores this situation. Based on a short film of the same name, created and directed by Pippa Bianco (Bleed for this, Picturing Barbara Kruger).
The film takes great responsibility, as it is a sensitive subject, so it has an obligation to portray in a serious way, which can serve as a kind of support to people who have gone through this situation, as well as to raise awareness about disclosure. intimate materials without the knowledge of those involved.
The film tells the story of Mandy (Rhianne Barreto), who had an intimate video released, and what most disturbs the protagonist is the fact that she simply does not remember anything about the night of the incident. The plot causes the viewer a mixture of emotions: sadness, anguish, anger, fear and distress. Over the course of the movie we see in the protagonist’s face the agony she is living, and we immerse herself in her daily life. Sharing also highlights the importance of parents in such cases, and Mandy even denying at first, ends up having the help of Mickey (J.C. Mackenzie) and Kerry (Poorna Jagannathan).
Photography and art direction play a key role, since from the first scene to the last, we can already see the tone of the film, and we saw that it will be from the beginning to the end.
Although the plot has a daily theme, the film still has surprises, in Mandy’s treatment to reintegrate his activities and relationship with friends before and after the event, the script knew to escape the obvious by portraying the case. The fact that the protagonist does not know what happened on the day of the video that was shared is what allows the script to present these arguments, and surprise the viewer, at every point where something of the fateful night is revealed, we have a new piece of the break. Head on, drama is able to hold the tension from the first to the last scene, literally.
