It is a real gut punch for anyone to receive the internet message "You Have Been Blocked" from another user. But it was especially painful for Chloe, who, to put it mildly, has become attached to Natasha who has blocked her.
The film was successful in developing a suspenseful triangulated relationship among Chloe, Natasha, and Theo. Natasha is a popular influencer and a published author. She is also a grieving widow.
Now, Natasha is confronted with two relentless stalkers in Theo and Chloe. Both stalkers are working out of the playbook of Joe Goldberg. That is to say, they will stop at nothing to be in the presence of their beloved Natasha.
Theo goes so far as to abduct Natasha's dog, returning it in order to earn Natasha's gratitude. For her part, the pill-popping Chloe steals Natasha's book from a book store and opens up boxes of clothing and tries them on at her delivery company. Chloe is equally whipt on Natasha as Theo. Chloe, whose grandmother recently died, uses that as an excuse to play the role of a bleeding heart in order to become "grief sisters" with Natasha.
It was never made clear in the film what was the attraction of the outdoor location in which Theo took Natasha. The scene with the bright lights was under-developed. What was so magical about this location that led Natasha at least momentarily to suspend her judgment about Theo as being a nut case?
Beyond its shortcomings, the film was well-acted with strong performances from the leads, as well as the actors playing such secondary characters as Sloan and Lewis. The dialogue was crisp and engaging in spite of the fact that characters' neuroses did not instill much confidence in the Presto shipping and delivery company. It should have been named Psycho Shipping, Inc.
