I love movies that are really about something and have a theme they want to express. This, along with The Place Beyond the Pines, sounds like a winner. I laughed out loud at the Manti Te'o reference, by the way.

Wow, an "A+" from Richard Roeper. Wasn't expecting that.

I thought that it was a fine film, although it isn't one of my favorite movies of 2013 so far.

Finally saw this today and I'm somewhere between JB and Roeper. The cyberbullying story and the reporter/kid dynamic were so strong that at times they threatened to overwhelm the third story (about identity theft), which is interesting but just didn't have the same impact. A solid ***1/2 for me on the strength of great thematic material and excellent acting all around.
