Time Out says

**** (Four stars)
While her mother and stepfather post idealized video blogs on their family website, alienated teenager Nat explores two online “relationships.” The first, with a man who gets his kicks from wearing diapers, stays in the realm of fantasy, while the other—a romance with a dying boy, expressed through computer games—feels more real, despite its virtual setting. Meanwhile, Nat is trying to meet her real father, a transsexual who has literally reinvented himself. Filmmaker Delphine Kreuter’s first feature is an intriguing, darkly funny contemplation of personal connections and identity in the digital age. The director also brings her experience as a photographer and video artist to bear in a poignant sequence in which Nat hits the streets with a webcam on her hat, to bring her real-world experiences to her hospital-bound friend. Kreuter's work is a visually and emotionally provocative experience.—Lisa Ritchie, special-projects editor
