About the Movie
Margaret, in the words of her best friend Cass, has been "doing better lately." Still, she struggles to consistently manage the lingering effects of a tragic past. In an effort to help Margaret keep in touch with her feelings, Margaret's therapist recommends she write in a daily journal. "Handwriting is archaic," according to Margaret. But Margaret knows she has to do something. In a fit of desperation, she starts recording private video blogs on her laptop. Then, one night, after going out with Cass, Margaret leaves her laptop behind at a bar in her Brooklyn neighborhood. Margaret is soon contacted by Vee, a nineteen year old working her way through college while living at home in the same Brooklyn neighborhood. Vee has found Margaret's laptop. She has watched all of Margaret’s videos. So begins a story of friendship based upon the revelation of some deeply personal feelings.
A brilliant showcase of reality
I throughly enjoyed the Videoblogs because it does a great job of showcasing things all of us have gone through and the struggles some of us have in day to day life.
Moving and important
I had the chance to see this film when it opened in New York City. The Videoblogs deals with the topic of mental illness--and mental well-being--in a way that is relateable and so important. I highly recommend this film.
Visionary film and filmmaker
Devastating new release from director Dibiasio - filled with challenging subject matter, compelling characters, and more than one tear. Keep an eye on this guy, I know I will.
