The Cy­ber­bully

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Thurs­day, ABC, 8.30pm

The per­va­sive na­ture of so­cial me­dia has an im­pact on al­most all of us now, but there’s no ques­tion kids and teenagers are most vul­ner­a­ble to the darker as­pects of in­ter­act­ing through tech­nol­ogy. This UK tele­movie ex­poses those risks through a night in the life of one teenager. Maisie Wil­liams (left, best known for her role as the feisty, head­strong Arya Stark in Game of Thrones) plays 17-year-old Casey, who soon finds her­self on the wrong side of a cy­ber­bully. The film takes place in real time as an or­di­nary af­ter­school evening quickly turns sour for Casey when a stranger uses her on­line pro­files to make her a prisoner in her own room.
