So me and the wife just watched Mortified Nation and if you haven’t heard of this fantastic fun flick that takes a look at the pasts of a group of people who were open to reading their journals and secrets up on a stage. The result of this made for a hilarious look at people’s lives. This documentary has the perfect balance with on stage performances and backstage interviews. You go on this journey with the creator Dave Nadelberg who really started all of this when he found this love letter he had written in high school.
I am a little late to this party since this film has been out for three years now, but the fantastic thing about Netflix is that there is always something you haven’t heard of which is the whole reason I have started this blog. I don’t want to spoil any of the stories here on my blog so I will just tell you some of the themes you can expect from the film which were First Loves, Rejection and other awkward moments for teenagers. To be completely honest, most of teenager’s lives are awkward. I guarantee that anyone who watches this amazing film will at least connect your life to any one of these stories if not all of them. I can say it pulled at my emotions in all directions I was almost in tears of laughter by the end of the film.
The overall message of this movie was that no matter what you are going through in life, especially our teenage years that it gets better the more time goes on. Here’s a quote from the film that kind of really hits home at least will me “We are freaks, we are fragile, and we all survived”. I strongly suggest going on Netflix and watching this as soon as possible, and if you have a diary or journal dust it off and read it and if you are really brave read it out to loud to your closest friends, you will be laughing at yourself all night. To make it simple I am adding the link to the trailer below.
That’s all for me, Start Streaming.
