Review: ‘Not Okay’ targets influencer culture and social media influence | app

A satire is as sharp as its subject matter, and writer-director Quinn Shephard has plenty to play for in “Not Okay,” targeting the void of social media and the facade of influencer culture.

She does this through Danni Sanders (Zoey Deutch), who we’re told upfront in a tongue-in-cheek pre-credits disclaimer that she’s an “unlikable female protagonist.” This ensures that we’ll never feel too sympathetic towards Danni, even if Shephard flirts with him giving him some sort of redemption arc. How willing Shephard is to leave her alone becomes its own little story within the story.
