Célène, at 17, is idealistic. She believes in absolute love, and is more interested in reading than in social networks. She is getting ready for living apart from her fiancé, Pierre, for a while, leaving Paris for Biarritz. Very quickly, she has to face the evil elite of her new school, ruled over by the former big-screen star and Instagram queen Vanessa and the celebrity surfer Tristan, who’s both dangerous and seductive. Célène falls in love with him, but is a long way from suspecting that she is at the centre of a cruel bet between Tristan and Vanessa. Just how far will they go?People need to chill, it is clearly not intended to be a perfect adaptation of the book but it does match its main message.Which is from my personal interpretation a representation of the malice and manipulation that society, pride, status, money and fame can bring into a relationship seen through the angle of youth and social media.I must admit it’s super cringy and sometimes weird but it’s entertaining and intended for the younger crowd.Yes there is LGBTQ+ characters, yes there is a polyamorous relationship so what ? You don’t have to support it but it does not make it a terrible movie that deserves a 1 rating.Definitely not a movie you watch at the cinema, but something you can watch at home without feeling like you wasted your time.
