The Columnist

The Columnist ★★★★

To call social media one of the prevalent inventions of the 21st century is an understatement. Widely used by so many, it's allowed for people to form friendships across wide distances, or to just as easily attack others. Newspaper columnist Femke Boot (Katja Herbers) knows this all too well, as receiving death threats are a daily occurrence for her online. Nobody takes them seriously or considers the mental toll it must take on Femke. This is excellently captured by Herbers, who conveys the weariness from receiving the barrage of hatred, later followed by rising like a phoenix, as she's clearly rejuvenated by silencing the sources of such disgusting vitriol.
