Synopsis


Catfish
Love and identity become twisted across the lines of the Internet in this documentary from filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Nev Schulman is a photographer who one day received a surprising e-mail message -- Abby, an eight-year-old girl in Michigan, had seen his picture in a newspaper and wanted permission to paint a portrait from it. Nev gave his OK, and when he was given a copy of the painting, he was struck by how good it was, assuming that the girl was either a genius or a fraud. Nev tried to contact Abby's family, and somehow ended up in contact with Megan, Abby's sexy 19-year-old sister. As Nev fell into an increasingly complicated on-line relationship with Megan, he decided it was time to meet her in person, but when he traveled to Michigan and tracked her down, Nev learned that Abby and Megan's family were not at all what he expected them to be. Ariel Schulman, Nev's brother, began filming his brother's adventures from his first contact with Abby, and in Catfish he and Henry Joost tell this strange story from beginning to end. Catfish received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I have been hooked on the tv show Catfish since it first aired and decided to check out the movie and was not let down at all. Online dating is becoming a huge craze in todays social media driven world, and the downfall is you dont ever actually know who you are talking to. This movie sheds light on the negative side of online dating and does it with great spirit.

    This movie is one of the biggest letdowns ever. With a tagline like "Don't let anyone tell you what it is", I was expecting something half decent and wound up being disappointed. They don't want anyone to tell you what it is, because then you won't want to see it. Horrible "acting". I use quotes because it's suppose to be "real", which it is far from.

    Though it starts a bit slow, the documentary unexpectedly becomes quite the compelling story that has now inspired a breakout television show on MTV in its second season.

    Fascinating look at what an internet relationship can turn out to be. So glad Nev and Max help others now who question if they are being "catfished".
