Streaming Series Review: Red Rose
Red Rose is a British series about a group of friends spending their last summer together before heading to college. When one of the group, Roch Mason, receives a notification to download a new app, Red Rose, everything changes. The app is the technological equivalent of the genie in a bottle. Wishes are granted, but always for a price. The app begins to make demands on Roch that she must obey. Her behavior begins to create tension within the group.
The series combines a wonderful cast, tight writing, and a unique use of technology to ratchet up the tension. Part coming-of-age, part techno-thriller, this one is worth watching.
Eight episodes streaming on Netflix. I recommend turning on subtitles as the accents can be a bit tough to understand at times.
