Black Mirror TV Series (2016): Episode 'Nosedive'
A television anthology series that shows the dark side of life and technology. A woman desperate to boost her social media score hits the jackpot when she’s invited to a swanky wedding, but the trip doesn’t go as planned.

Lacie lives in a world where people's status is governed by their rating on social media. She is a 4.2 and needs to be a 4.5 to be able to afford to rent an apartment at the plush Pelican Cove compound. Thus she calls upon well-regarded old college friend Naomie for approval and gets invited to Naomie's forthcoming wedding. Unfortunately on the journey there events conspire to make Lacie's rating even lower but, inspired by a frank talking trucker, Susan, who lost points for speaking her mind, Lacie crashes the wedding from which she is now barred for her low status and blasts off against Naomie, her pretentious circle of friends and the system.

Max Richter is an award-winning West German-born British composer who has been an influential voice in post-minimalist composition and has seen great commercial and critical success, including his works Sleep, and Three Worlds: Music from Woolf Works. He is also an in-demand film & TV music composer which his score features here…

“I decided to treat the near-future dystopia ‘Nosedive’ as though the whole film were a dream. Therefore the score works as a kind of warm reassuring lullaby, continuously telling us that we are existentially safe, when in fact it is obvious that this is far from the case.

“The repeated and continuously pulsating music is intended to lull us into a kind of brainwashed state, so that, when the end comes, we too, along with the central character, are suddenly disenchanted, and therefore released.”
– Max Richter
