Film4 Chatroom

Synopsis

When five teenagers meet online, friendships are forged. But soon one dysfunctional member of the group singles out the most vulnerable in the group and seizes the chance to erase his own past

About

Chatroom started life as a stage play, performed at the National Theatre by the highly acclaimed stage and screen writer, Enda Walsh. The film explores the relationship of a group of teenagers who meet online. The dark character-driven story written by Walsh in 2005 received positive reviews when it was performed, with The Times calling it a "60 minute masterpiece, a computer-age Lord of the Flies. The writing is taut, vivid, cool, scary and often funny."

Film4 is proud to have developed Chatroom, a Ruby Films Production, from renowned horror director Hideo Nakata, with the UK Film Council and WestEnd Films.
