InRealLife review

A documentary that aims to examine the effect of the internet on teenagers' lives

Did you know that 40 per cent of teenagers spend more time with their friends online than in real life?

That’s one of the factoids in Beeban Kidron’s thoughtful doc, which examines how the internet is shaping today’s youth.

More shocking are the teens themselves, who have entire relationships and devour porn online at the old age of 15.

Unsurprisingly, Google, Facebook and YouTube all declined to be interviewed, so InRealLife feels a little incomplete.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange makes the biggest impact, branding the internet “the greatest spying machine ever developed”.
