Kirsten Dunst gives a nuanced (make that very nuanced) performance in a short clip that lampoons today’s social media set, who live through the iPhones and track their lives on social sharing sites.

Written and directed by Matthew Frost for Vs. magazine, the short film is titled “Aspirational.”

It features Dunst as herself and two self-absorbed fan girls who live to score selfies with celebrities.

There’s surprisingly little dialogue, but that’s the point. The age of conversation is dead, unless its in 140 characters or less and posted online.

Ironically, Dunst is a victim of the latest social media uproar, the breach of dozens of iPhone accounts. Hackers uncovered a trove of private celebrity nude photos, including some selfies taken by Dunst.

“Thanks iCloud,” was her response to the leak.

In the clip she’s passing through the front gate of her home to wait for a pickup on the sidewalk out front. The two fan girls drive by, spot her and slam on the brakes.

They back up and jump out of the car while Dunst looks on slightly bewildered.

They edge up to her with barely a “hello,” and edge in closely to take selfies with her.

One girl edges in closely to make the photo look intimate.

When they’re done, Kristen asks if they’d like to ask her a question “about anything.”

But the only response is, “Can you tag me?”

The encounter is hilarious in a cool, subtle way, just like Kirsten.

The clip ends with the girls squealing about how many random followers they are going to pick up after posting the photo.
