13 mins, 2018

Mommy blogs occupy a lucrative corner of the internet, where well-heeled parents parade their well-dressed families online in exchange for sponsorship dollars, free stuff and a certain kind of infamy. NYC housewife Addie wants to conquer this world and become a celebrity. So she pressures her husband to quit his job to devote himself to their family culture and the making of the videos for their blog. From being a nobody — to getting within reach of the internet fame — to dropping the ball and losing it, Addie is plucky and indomitable, a Sisyphus with a smile and hair extensions. Spoiler alert: she’s never gonna get there. But she’s never gonna stop trying.
