Disconnect - the movie

I don't normally write movie reviews, but I just saw the most captivating movie! According to Newsweek, this is the best movie of the year! Disconnect is an indie drama that was only released in 161 theaters and I only heard about it because a groupon was offered for it. Then I had to find the one random theater in my area that had it which coincidentally had armchair seating! Yes all the seats fully recline like in first class on an airplane!

It reminded me of the movie Crash, multiple story lines going on at the same time. It's about families that are disconnected from each other but connected to the internet and how dangerous cyber relationships can be.  The movie definitely made me tear up to watch. It stars Alexander Skarsgard (from True Blood), Jason Bateman, Paula Patton and in his cameo acting role fashion designer Marc Jacobs as a cyber pimp.

A hard-working lawyer, attached to his cell phone, can't find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when their secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site. They are strangers, neighbors and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today's wired world.
