Social media plays a huge part in a film that debuted last week at the Tribeca Film Festival and received the audience choice award for Best Narrative.  A huge part IN the film, not in the promoting of the film, although that aspect likely exists too. What I’m trying to say is, social media was a huge component in the movie “Chef”.

 

With a bunch of big-name actors (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara, etc.), the story goes like this: A chef receives a bad review from a food critic and responds via Twitter and has a meltdown that goes viral on YouTube. Then he starts a food truck business which he advertises through Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Facebook.

 

This film displays the power of social media, how it can be dangerous and how it can be a salvation. It’s up to you how you use it. Watch this 3-minute clip to get an idea of how Twitter plays a part in the storyline:

 

 

Social media has become a huge mainstay in our everyday lives, so it makes sense that we’ll begin to see it more and more in books and movies.

 

 

 

Will you see this movie when it comes out nationwide on May 9?
