Disconnect looks like a connection worth making

Online, a stranger can become your closest friend – or enemy – in a second in the good-looking new ensemble drama DISCONNECT.

I first heard about DISCONNECT when it was screened at last year’s Venice film festival. I was immediately struck by what a top-notch cast that director Henry Alex Rubin had assembled for this good-looking drama about a group of people all connected to each other in some way online. You have Jason Bateman, Paula Patton, her Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol co-star Michael Nyqvist, Alexander Skarsgard, Andrea Riseborough, and Hope Davis among them.

Now watching the first trailer, I can see it also has Max Thieriot, just seen as Jennifer Lawrence’s neighbour in The House at the End of the Street; Frank Grillo, one of those great character actors whose work you’ll recognise because over the last couple of years it’s included roles in Warrior, Lay the Favorite, The Grey, and the upcoming End of Watch; and Jonah Bobo whose recent star turn was as Steve Carell’s son in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

So take a look at DISCONNECT which I think will be one of the movies to watch out for this spring.
