PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Combining the British Teen Grittiness™ of Skins with the eerily disobedient tech of Black Mirror, Red Rose is the latest offbeat YA offering from BBC Three. Made in collaboration with Netflix, the eight-part series follows a group of Bolton 16-year-olds as they navigate the eternal agonies of adolescence (angst, summer jobs) and the altogether more current threat of Red Rose – a dangerously compelling app, whose power reaches far beyond the screen. While it doesn’t exist in our world per se, a patchwork of our favourite apps and trends is clearly discernible beneath its shiny interface: Red Rose, coming to a phone near you.After an enigmatic flash-forward, in which a girl lost her mind and then her life at the algorithmic hands of Red Rose, the show’s first episode introduced best friends Rochelle (Isis Hainsworth) and Wren (Amelia Clarkson). Celebrating the end of school by signing each other’s shirts and promising to “get f**ked every single night”, they were offered a crash course in the social hierarchies of their classmates courtesy of a party on some nearby moors.With feisty Rochelle having secured herself an invite to popular Becky Fox’s party, rebellious Wren was free to slip away with her beau Noah (Harry Redding). Visibly troubled, Rochelle didn’t have long to brood before a text message came in: “Maybe: Becky Fox: ‘Here Roche, thought you might like this, enjoy!’”.Clicking on the link, Rochelle saw her face smoothed and sculpted in her phone’s front-facing camera; as she looked puzzled into the lens, her alter-ego smiled coquettishly on screen. “Roses are red, violets are blue, come to the Garden where you can bloom too.” Appearances can be deceiving – but it’s hard to resist something beautiful, especially if it’s what you’ve always wanted: “Welcome to the new you.

. And with tension building between her and Wren, isolated Rochelle became ever more vulnerable to Red Rose’s siren song.The app told Rochelle to write three wishes on a mirror. The generic advice could have come from any number of pseudo-spiritual lifestyle brands or hashtags – #manifesting #thepowerofpositivethinking #inspo, et al – so when she found £100 on her family’s electricity meter and a beautiful gown hanging in her garden, Rochelle was as surprised as she was delighted. But like most glossy surfaces, a darker current pulsed just below the surface.More from CultureAnaïs Mitchell: ‘I’m 40 now - when am I gonna stop trying to please people?’15 August, 2022Hamlet with Ian McKellen feels like a school play that has lucked out with its celebrity star15 August, 2022Married at First Sight UK start date: When MAFS 2022 is expected and the full line-up15 August, 2022Applying the augmented reality of Pokémon Go to a teenager’s most crushing trauma, Red Rose captured the internet’s dizzying expanse of possibilities along with the astonishing bleakness of its deepest depths.Set in a not-too-distant future – or perhaps a parallel universe – the technology in Red Rose is more familiar than it is novel. Between Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, filters, viral hashtags and Twitter pile-ons, digital interaction is as brutally context-free as it is omnipresent.Drawing on a host of up-to-the-minute topics, Red Rose’s first episode was both highly entertaining and startlingly thought-provoking. Great performances from the core cast (particularly Hainsworth) elevated Red Rose beyond the usual fare without sacrificing any watchability – but beware, you’ll never look at your phone the same way again.
