Are we addicted to our freaking telephones? This cautionary thriller from director Lauren Havel and her co-writer Jennifer Havel dares to finally ask this question in the year of our Lord 2021. Fortunately for us, SCREENED IN’s tired critique of contemporary life is dressed up with absolutely insane sequences and creative decisions that kept us on the edge of our seats. When a teenage girl named Peyton starts to notice that she and her friends’ lives are far too focused on what’s happening on screens, she challenges them to a week-long “digital detox”, where they’ll attempt to go “off the grid” with zero electronics to interfere with their concentration. Somehow, despite their good intentions, this ignites a week of their lives with constant drama. Relationships are ruined, family secrets are uncovered, and a shocking plot twist involving a toddler’s medical emergency threatens to change the course of Peyton’s life forever. Is the demonic spirit of the smartphone punishing its teen captors for trying to free themselves from its grasp? In the end, only their own tenacity — and the power of prayer — will allow them to log off.
