Director: Henry Alex Rubin. Cast: Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton. 115 min. Rated R. Drama.
Three stories narrated in parallel, about educated people using the internet, Facebook, their iPads, and their cellphones, to build relationships with other entities online, and then trusting them, and then sharing their most personal info and intimate secrets, without even having seen the person face-to-face before, or confirming whether the virtual identity they're connecting with truly exists in the outside world - ending in the loss of their own privacy and existence. Disconnect is the story of us; it's the story of our times. Surprising turn by Jason Bateman, who before this was almost a nobody in movies. Not anymore.
