Adaptation of the acclaimed play
When a feisty book blogger tangles with the disgruntled author of a novel she panned, her life is upended, her identity threatened.
The top critic for the Brooklyn-based arts blog BLACKDOG.com meets first-time novelist Menlo Harrington in a dark alley. Over drinks in a nearby public place, they find much to talk about. She meets his twin brother Gil, a high-finance type (owner of the Jaguar) and is seriously attracted. When Menlo kills himself and posts a suicide note on YouTube blaming her negative review, the mystery of who he was begins to unravel. BLACKDOG’S analytics go through the roof – putting Ariel in danger, and under serious pressure from her ambitious boss and a rival intern.
