You could almost drown in the trippy, ‘80s neon-drenched world of Like Me, on display in this new trailer.
The directorial debut of writer-director Rob Mockler, Like Me stars Addison Timlin (The Town that Dreaded Sundown, Derailed) as the desperately lonely Kiya who, after accidentally becoming something of a social media star, discovers a drug-hazed world populated by outsiders and dropouts. Co-starring are Ian Nelson (The Boy Next Door), Jeremy Gardner (The Mind’s Eye, Psychopaths) and indie horror icon Larry Fessenden (House of the Devil, You’re Next), who also produces.
After posting a video of herself robbing a convenience store, Kiya amasses a huge social media following. A reckless loner, she seeks some form of genuine human connection. Through her travels, she encounters a drifter, an Internet troll and a paint huffing outsider who are all pulled into her circle of chaos, junk food, and drugs. In a world of fabricated personalities, Kiya is intent on exposing something gutturally truthful about humanity, but ultimately, she must confront herself.
Like Me is heading to select US cinemas on January 26th from Kino Lorber, with a VOD release to follow in February.
