the heart machine, the debut film directed by Zachary Wigon which Starrs John Gallagher Jr is a movie about romance in these new times. It is about a couple whose relationship only exists via Skype. Gallagher’s idea was to meet his romantic interest when they actually met in person in the movie. Thus, the movie would look very real. However, that didn’t happen. Gallagher went to a theater party and there she was. He couldn’t resist the temptation of approaching her and introducing himself. He said that they clicked off immediately.

So make sure to watch this film if you are into social media and human interaction. It will actually leave you with more questions to the subject but hey, these are the times we live in.
