Bryan Singer produces a true-life tale of troubled teens

Although it frequently beggars belief, Andrew Douglas’ tale of English teens egging each other on to mayhem through instant messaging – produced, bizarrely, by Bryan Singer – is based on a true story.

One-to-watch Jamie Blackley is the teen led to vandalism, then violence, by the relationships he makes online; Toby Regbo, his real-world co-conspirator.

Massively unlikely, but compelling to the last, it makes a decent fist of conveying the strength of internet attachments, even if filtering the unfolding drama through endless computer screens becomes a well-worn device.
