Though Second Life is carried out entirely by cyber avatars within the confines of a virtual world, new documentary Life 2.0 steps outside the screen to show you the people who are living fuller lives online than off.
Second Life is a free online virtual world where people can design avatars, get jobs, buy houses, get married, and basically, do almost anything that's possible in the real world, and a few things that are not.
Life 2.0, directed by Jason Spingarn-Koff, takes you into the lives of a group of Second Life users, who can spend as much as 20 hours a day on the site. The documentary introduces you to an adult man who spends his time in the avatar of an 11-year-old girl, a married woman who takes virtual infidelity and makes it physical, and a woman who starts a Second Life business to earn millions of real dollars.
Variety wrote of the film, "Every thread here raises a provocative question about the ethics of online interactivity, and serves to demonstrate the Web's ability to both facilitate and destroy human relationships."
