Looking to catch a cool flick? Join us at the CIA at Copia for a screening of People You May Know, an audience favorite from last year’s Napa Valley Film Festival. The film will be presented as part of the CIA at Copia’s First Friday series, a free monthly event that celebrates the arts.
Jed (Nick Thune) has somehow lasted deep into his thirties without venturing into the world of social media. A self-established introvert and talented photo editor, Jed’s absence from the digital networking landscape has left him socially marooned. That is, until he discovers that he can use his wizard-like Photoshop mastery to present his life in any way imaginable. When digital marketing manager Tasha (Halston Sage) sees an opportunity to cultivate a celebrity out of a nobody, she helps fabricate Jed’s false life via multiple online platforms. Before long, Jed emerges from his cocoon as a high-profile social butterfly. However, after Jed unexpectedly crosses paths with his high-school crush Franky (Kaily Smith Westbrook), dormant affections reawaken and Jed must find a way to reconcile his unvarnished self with the slick facade of his online persona.
