Those darn kids these days, with their smartphones and Snapchats and, uh, LiveJournals! When will they stop looking at the screen and see the big picture? I don’t know, but in the meantime, here’s Mainstream, a very loud-seeming movie from director Gia Coppola. Stranger Things breakout Maya Hawke plays a young woman hoping for internet stardom, and she soon gets her wish when she teams up with a mysterious weirdo played by Andrew Garfield. But fame corrupts, as the saying goes, and online celebrity might not be all it’s cracked up to be. Watch the Mainstream trailer below.
