WHEN Jodie Foster’s Black Mirror episode Arkangel was released a couple of weeks back, some critics were disappointed the storyline didn’t deviate far enough from current reality.
But for many, including parents, that made it even scarier.
The cult Netflix anthology series, now into its fourth season, is like a tech version of The Twilight zone and Foster’s foray into the series was unexpected to say the least.
Her episode stars Mad Men’s Rosemarie DeWitt as single mum Marie, who chooses to have her young daughter implanted with a chip to control what the girl sees and hears.
With technology advancing so quickly and parents feeling the need to cocoon kids more than ever, Arkangel gives an insight into where this current trend could end up.
We spoke to Foster and De Witt about raising kids, technology and why Black Mirror is so compelling.
