After winning numerous raves (including ours) during its festival run earlier this year, Daniel Goldhaber and Isa Mazzei’s CAM is now set to debut in wider release on big and small screens later this year.

CAM, which Goldhaber directed from Mazzei’s script, opens at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas around the country November 16, and will also being streaming on Netflix the same day. Madeline Brewer, Patch Darragh, Melora Walters, Devin Druid, Imani Hakim, Michael Dempsey, Flora Diaz and Samantha Robinson (THE LOVE WITCH) star. According to the official synopsis, the film “follows Alice [Brewer], an ambitious camgirl, who wakes up one day to discover she’s been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself. As this copy begins to push the boundaries of Alice’s Internet identity, the control that Alice has over her life, and the men in it, vanishes. While she struggles to regain what she’s lost, she slowly finds herself drawn back to her show and to the mysterious person who has taken her place.”
