Every family wants to be closer. Every couple has secrets. Everyone is fighting to get ahead. Every cause has an effect. In Disconnect, a dozen lives collide as they search for meaning, justice, and connection.
Three interconnected stories, three chances for redemption. A busy lawyer (Jason Bateman) spends all day glued to his cell phone, neglecting his family in order to maintain his wealth of professional contacts. A naive couple (Alexander Skarsgard and Paula Patton) try to connect with strangers over the internet, and they get their identity stolen for their troubles. An ambitious journalist (Andrea Riseborough) wants to write a story about a teenager performing on an adult-only website, but their interaction jeopardizes both her career and his life. As each story progresses, three worlds clash, with lives hanging in the balance. Disconnect explores the dark side of connectedness—and highlights the many ways in which we can lose ourselves in today’s increasingly wired world.
Written by Andrew Stern and directed by Academy-Award nominated Henry-Alex Rubin, Disconnect will see a limited theatrical release on April 12, 2013.
