Rubbing our eyes to make Mainstream come into focus. This looks like it’s The Social Network’s sequel we didn’t ask for? Did we ask? Regardless Andrew Garfield has sold us.
Mainstream is directed by Mia Coppola and set for release on May 7th. The film follows a young woman who finds a path to internet stardom when she starts making videos with a charismatic stranger. The trailer seems to imply that Mainstream is a cautionary tale, where three people struggle to preserve their identities as they form an eccentric love triangle within the fast-moving internet age of social media popularity.
