Mainstream – A Comedy-drama Movie!


The mainstream story revolves around Frankie and Link. These two are the main protagonists of the show. As a comedy-drama, you can expect the movie to have a lot of entertainment in it. Mainstreams successfully make the viewers fall for the comedy and entertain them through the end of the show. 

Mainstream was first released at the Venice Film festival then the movie was released again on May 7, 2021, by IFC Films. The production of this movie was started in 2019 and to my surprise, it was produced for only under $5 Million Dollars. In return, the movie has earned $30 Million dollars. This is a huge profit as compared to what the producers have invested in but is $30 Million dollars is enough to decide a movie is great? Well seeing the Box office hit as compared to other movies, the movie has made relatively very low money.

After the movie ends, is there a chance for the second part of it? Well, this is quite a risk for the movie to release a second part as it doesn’t go as per the expectations of the people much but the movie is great indeed.

Mainstream – What is it about?

mainstream movie review

You can think of this story as real because there are chances that it would or can surely happen to anyone. The movie starts with the introduction of Frankie (Maya Hawke) who is a young woman but doesn’t have any goal in life. She has already dropped out of her school and decided to pursue her dream, but what is her dream? Is she really following it? we’ll NO!

The world is not as easy as it seems to us and achieving and fulfilling our dreams requires a lot of hard work. But she understood this thing very late. Now, she is working with one of her friends named Jake in the bar. 

She has also opened her Youtube channel and posts about random stuff whenever she gets time. Her Youtube channel was also not that popular and she was struggling to get more subscribers and views on her channel. 

One day, she went out to the city and vlogs the surroundings. While enjoying the view and vlogging she found Link. her camera records Link and the Monologue next to him. Surprisingly, the video which has Link got many views and became the popular video of her channel. 

After some time, she again meets with Link and they both become friends.

Together they both started their own team for their youtube channel titled “No one together”. They both started to make the q quality of content and the views and subscribers started to grow significantly. But fame doesn’t come like this. Their video of being together instantly hot millions and now it becomes like a talk show where the people come and play games. 

Frankie, Link, and Jake are doing amazing in the show and their videos are getting popular. Frankie and Link are also started dating and their trio was all good but as the show started to make more progress the bond started to get weaker and breakable.

Now everything started to mess up and there were situations when as a viewer I wanted to throw myself away, but the movie was still amazing from my point of view. You will see the actual representations of how a person can make things go upside down just by his attitude and behavior and it is so heartbreaking. If you are someone who always wants to try something different with the movies then you should definitely check this one.
