ACMI & Netflix present
Clickbait: Series Premiere
Join us for the world premiere of this compelling, high stakes thriller co-created by Tony Ayres.
Nick Brewer (Adrian Grenier) is a loving father, husband, and brother, who one day suddenly and mysteriously disappears until a video appears on the internet of the badly beaten Nick holding a card that says "I abuse women – at 5 million views, I die". As his sister (Zoe Kazan) and wife (Betty Gabriel) rush to find and save him, they uncover a side of Nick they didn't know existed.
Told from revolving points of view, Clickbait is a compelling, high stakes thriller that explores the ways in which our most dangerous and uncontrolled impulses are fueled in the age of social media, revealing the ever-widening fractures we find between our virtual and real-life personas. Co-created by Tony Ayres (Walking on Water, The Home Song Stories) and with a Lead Director in Brad Anderson (The Wire, The Sinner), the series is a major Australian-American co-production.
The full 8-part limited series will be available on Netflix from Wednesday 25 Aug 2021.
