High school is hard enough, but when the meanest, most popular girl at your school is also a famous YouTuber? Well, that comes with its own set of challenges — or at least it does for the main character in this new, Mean Girls-esque Netflix movie, #RealityHigh.
Here, that girl is Alexa Medina (Alicia Sanz), who is the bane of protagonist Dani Barnes' (Nesta Cooper) entire high school existence. Alexa is a social media influencer with nine million followers online, while Dani, according to her sister, has only two friends: her BFF Freddie (Jake Borelli), and her grandmother...who happens to be dead.
When her sister's harsh words convince Dani to give herself an Insta-worthy makeover, Alexa's crew — and her boyfriend — start seeing her in a different light. Unfortunately, Dani quickly loses herself to their world of parties and perfect selfies, leaving her friend Freddie in the dust.
Clearly, Dani hasn't learned a thing from Lindsay Lohan's Cady Heron. She even starts a romance with Alexa's ex-boyfriend (played by Famous In Love star Keith Powers), leading the YouTuber to go full-on scorched earth.
Dani better watch her back, because if there's anything we've learned from countless of vlogs and shady diss tracks, there's nothing like a YouTuber scorned.
Check out the trailer below.
#RealityHigh is the teen movie for the Instagram generation. Hopefully, Dani will realize how important it is to return to your authentic self...no matter how many likes her Insta-appearance gets her.
