PG-13 96 Mins
Venus is a hard-working high school senior, focused, with drive and a pending scholarship at CalArts, the esteemed art school in California, that would help her spread her wings and leave Staten Island, her homeplace. Diffident enough and constantly in the shadow of her popular friend Sydney, Venus will be enticed by the notoriously hardcore reality online game “Nerve”, and accept to become, for once in her life, a “player” instead of a mere “watcher”. However, Venus is definitely not an adrenaline junkie, so by leaving her comfort zone, she will be gradually lured into an ongoing wave of incrementally difficult assignments, all contrived by the “watchers'” hungry appetite for thrills and excitement. When Venus accepts to kiss Ian, a random guy who turns out to be another “Nerve” player, the “watchers” will not be able to get enough of the couple, demanding to team up against an all-night, white-knuckle truth or dare adventure all over town. Inevitably, as the game insidiously claims Vee’s personal life and friends, she will have to face one relentless dilemma: how far is she willing to go to win back her life?
