When Strangers Click (2011)
Plot summary: Director Robert Kenner explores the world of online dating through the stories of five individuals who went looking for love on the Internet.
Directed by Robert Kenner.
This little hour-long TV documentary about Internet relationships is surprisingly interesting. It's nicely varied, and as someone who has formed plenty of friendships online (though no romances) I really liked seeing stories like the Second Life couple who found a way to have a solid friendship and relationship online since they can't be together in real life any time soon. It's a little amateur in its production, but it's a pretty entertaining little flick, and definitely hits on something that I think still has a bad reputation despite the fact that so many people meet online these days.
