Disconnect opens in theaters today, a movie that weaves together multiple storylines—each one focusing on the pitfalls of technology—so you get several plots for the price of one (like Crash or Love Actually). And you’ll see a bunch of familiar faces, too, like Alexander Skarsgard, Jason Bateman, Frank Grillo, Paula Patton, and even a cameo by designer Marc Jacobs. “It’s not an anti-Internet film,” clarified Alexander Skarsgard at the New York premiere of his role as a war veteran struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder. “It’s a film about human beings who are trying to connect.” Meanwhile, Bateman plays a father whose son fall victim to cyber-bullying. “It was hard to get him to be serious, but when he was serious it blew us away,” director Henry-Alex Rubin said. “The crew couldn’t believe the performances he was doing.” Click here to see where Disconnect is playing near you.
