King Kelly (LOUISA KRAUSE) is an aspiring Internet star who performs webcam stripteases. When Kelly's car - filled with illegal narcotics that she must deliver - is stolen by her bitter ex-boyfriend Ryan (WILL BRILL) on the 4th of July, Kelly and her best friend Jordan (LIBBY WOODBRIDGE) embark on an epic whirlwind of drugs, sex, violence, and mischief-making as Kelly tries to reclaim what is hers. Kellyís biggest online fan, a wayward State Trooper (RODERICK HILL), joins the journey as the night spirals into chaos. Made entirely from camera-phone footage, King Kelly is a sensational journey through hedonistic American youth culture and the YouTube generation.

Saw the film last night. Was not what I expected. My friend brought me and frankly I was not expecting to enjoy it but I did. Thoroughly. The film has a perspective that didn't preach. Funny and entertaining and definitely stayed with me and made me think about the current generation and what it faces in the digital era.
