Ron's Gone Wrong
The story of Barney, an awkward middle-schooler and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally-connected device. Ron’s malfunctions, set against the backdrop of the social media age, launch them on a journey to learn about true friendship.
The film is an indictment of the invasive, insidious tactics of Big Tech, which shines a light on the superficial nature of social media and how it amplifies bullying and insecurities, especially among the young people for whom it serves as a lifeline. But, fundamentally, it’s a lively and sometimes hilarious animated adventure and a sweet story of friendship.
Co-directed by Sarah Smith, Jean-Philippe Vine and Octavio E. Rodriguez.
