The darker side of living a perceived perfect life on social media is put under the microscope this weekend in the premiere of the Lifetime movie He's Not Worth Dying For. Inspired by true events, the film follows 19-year-old Isla (Rachel Boyd, pictured above), a successful beauty and fashion influencer with dreams of taking her notoriety to the next level, and Grace (Hilda Martin), an excellent student with aspirations of becoming a vet. Enter Jake (Lachlan Quarmby), who, unbeknownst to the girls, is dating both of them at the same time. With the majority of their lives lived online, it's not long before they discover what Jake is up to. After sides are taken by their followers, an all-out social media war erupts online, one that soon spills into real life with deadly consequences.
