NEV’S ENDING STORY
While the film shows no actual fish, “Catfish” is one fishy movie. It asserts itself to be one-hundred-percent true documentary, but there are times when you doubt its authenticity. Its premise involves an affable photographer named Nev. As documented by his two camera-ready roomies, we see him expound on his unlikely correspondence with a child painter named Abby.
The girl, miles away in Michigan, has seen one of Nev’s published photographs. She contacts him, expresses her admiration, and sends him her paintings inspired by his work. Touched to have a fan, Nev communicates with Abby mostly through cyber. Soon, in Facebook, he also befriends her appreciative mother Angela and hot half-sister Megan. He becomes intimate with the family as the correspondence grows through text messages, phone calls, and songs. Then one day, Nev decides to surprise them by driving to Michigan. And the surprise! – the supriser becomes the surpisee. The movie depends on this revelation and if you have not watched it yet and plans to, I warn you that the following might splash some spoilers.
