To most people, especially those that don't read, it's not important. If one . . .
Vee is not the adventurous type... Her best friend Syd, however, can pretty much do anything---and does. When Syd suggests Vee do something wild and dangerous, Vee surprises her and does just that: she becomes a player in Nerve, a game where you complete dares for prizes.

Another year is here, and you know what that means: another 12 months packed with great films, especially a d a p t a t i o n s.
