Upon meeting Charlie in person, Annie realises that the past few months of seduction have been a complete lie, and Charlie is in fact a much older man. Unaware of the consequences of her actions, she chooses to continue her relationship with him, much to the horror of her parents who discover that their daughter has been seduced by a sexual predator. Together, the family struggle to deal with what is every parent’s nightmare in this common age of technology and invasion of privacy, and Annie must survive the devastating realisation that she is a victim, not a girlfriend.
Without doubt, the actors’ performances are excellent. Owen and Keener give solid performances as the traumatised parents, especially Owen, whose forte seems to be drama. However, the real standout performance is delivered by Liberato, who brings a maturity and an acute depiction of internalised trauma to her character. Coffey also gives an excellent performance as the predator, being both believable and sinister in his portrayal.
