The new film “The Influencer” is a present day look at the social media influencer phenomenon. And in this case, how it can go very wrong. If you’re not familiar with influencers, they are basically modern day pitch people. Their large social media following can catch the interest of companies that then hire them to promote their products/business/etc.

As someone that has a love/hate relationship with social media right now, “The Influencer” was a fun yet dark look at what’s behind some (not all) of the influencers out there, taken to a thrilling extreme of course.

Abbie Rose (played by Kasia Szarek) is a popular social media influencer that is as shallow as they come. She is the center of a home invasion by five criminals (actually numbered - initially led by Yasmine "Yaz" Abeydeera") that tears her world apart and shows what her life is really like.

The world of social media and it’s own influence on modern society is something that will continue to evolve and develop over time. For those of us that remember a time when none of this existed, it will be very interesting to see how all of this affects the future generations that are growing up with social media as a normal part of their culture.
