We all have that friend or group of friends we absolutely love to hang with, yes? But ever found out if you really know them into their deepest secrets?
Watched a movie the other day that brought this to the fore. Titled “Nothing to hide”
Now, it’s about a bunch of old friends who decided to play a ‘game’ during a dinner night hosted by one of the couples.
The rules of the game were quite simple – everyone has to place their mobile phones at the center of the table and every text message, phone call, email, Facebook message, etc. will be shared verbally with everyone else at the table.
This is clearly a recipe of disaster. A typical example of ‘if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it’.
As the evening proceeds, It unravels a whole lot of hidden issues as they all had something to hide, phones go off, bitter truths are revealed, feelings are hurt, and old friends quickly realize they really don’t know each other completely.
My favorite scene was the father – daughter conversation – Daughter called her dad about losing her virginity and he said “If it was just for me, I’d say don’t do it, don’t ever do it. Stay my little girl forever. But that’s impossible.”
“Nothing to hide” is a good balance of funny, touching and dramatic moments. I particularly loved the plot twists, the ending was unexpected.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend this.
This movie just reiterates the fact that mobile phones and social media allows us to build a life that is probably far from the truth.
IMDB rated it 6.8, I’ll rate it 8/10.
What would happen if your private messages were read in public? Will you play this game?
