An innocent millennial finds herself in an unthinkable situation and the only thing that can fix it, of course, is her cell phone.
We have been here before – one generation not understand the next. Technology has almost become its own generation forcing its way into ALL our lives – young, old, seasoned or naïve. But where we have not yet been, is within this generation observing that perhaps it doesn’t quite understand itself. A view into full convenience and 24hour access to communication overkill. The pros and cons of being too accessible.
Good news is that this millennial generation has a fantastic lightness and sense of humor. This Gen-X woman director fell in love with fresh young minds that tackle life with everything to offer and still find the time to step back and say – wait, WTF is going on with society?!
Social Media might perhaps be the new rock ‘n roll voice for this generation that has the power to unite globally. Although – I would REALLY love more rock ‘n roll on the airwaves – at least media content is showing it also has some balls.
“Cat’s Outta The Bag” allowed me to be a fly on the wall of a dating collective that – to be honest – still lusts for the same thing generations before them have – genuine connection. As we have all learned that through our passionate pursuits for love there must also be pain and loss; therefore, we know we are alive and, sadistically, in balance.
This dark comedy explores a community that pushes the boundaries of comfort and entitlement to its limits and simultaneously screams at the audience “ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION?!”.
I hope you enjoy the beats – find the laughter and lightness and then – pause and think – wait, is this real? Perhaps.
