About the Movie

LIFE 2.0 follows a group of people whose lives are dramatically transformed by the virtual world, Second Life. They enter a new reality, whose inhabitants assume alternate personas in the form of avatars - digital alter egos that can be sculpted and manipulated to the heart's desire. The film is foremost an intimate, character-based drama about people who look to a virtual world in search of something they are missing in their real lives. The results are unexpected and often disturbing: reshaping relationships, identities, and ultimately the very notion of reality. Mixing high drama and quirky humor, the film uniquely explores the promise, perils, and implications of virtual worlds for society at large.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Life 2.0" would have been more interesting and original if it, like its subjects, had dwelled more in the virtual world, and if it had told us more about that world's mechanics and folkways. – Mike Hale, New York Times, May 19, 2011

Fresh: A disturbing but nonjudgmental study of online addiction and the lure of manufactured identities. – Justin Chang, Variety, May 17, 2011

Fresh: At once a disturbing vision of escape, a cautious portrait of liberation, and an exploration of authenticity and artificiality, it's a documentary that trades not in absolutes but unsettling ambiguity. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, May 17, 2011

Fresh: [Spingarn-Koff] films computer screens with no borders, as if putting viewers into the graphic creations, while he listens to his obsessives describe the function and emotional power of their created personae. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, May 16, 2011
