A love letter to our generation, this mockumentary comedy follows five
social media celebrities preparing for a group cover shoot four weeks away.
In the spirit of Christopher Guest, the film takes you inside the lives of
the Influencer stars of the issue in the weeks leading up to the
photo-shoot. All goes awry when one of them has a social-media induced
breakdown that forces all to face the question of why we are all so
consumed with social media. Are we humans or handles?
THE SOCIAL ONES, written and directed by Laura Kosann, is a mockumentary
that hilariously explores the lives and anxieties of a group of social
media “influencers”. The film, which received the 2019 Audience Award for
Best Comedy Feature at Cinequest Film Festival, stars Richard Kind (Mad
About You, Red Oaks, A SERIOUS MAN), Debra Jo Rupp (That 70s Show), Jackie
Hoffman (Feud), Peter Scolari (Girls), Stephanie March (Law and Order:
Special Victims Unit), Nicole Kang (CW’s Batwoman, You) and Colton Ryan
(star of Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen and the upcoming new musical Girl From
The North Country).
