Based on a novel by Chad Kultgen,  Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children is a multi-character film that wants to deliver a message about how our burgeoning electronic connectivity -- through phones and computers -- has actually distanced us from each other.
It turns out there's a real disconnect between the ease of cyber crime and cyber mischief versus the messiness of real-world
Jacobs' performance stands up to those of his more experienced cast mates, among them Jason Bateman, Hope Davis and Alexander
If you are reading this sentence, you are probably part of the online universe into which the new film Disconnect is wired. Moving, smart and troubling, this ensemble piece is directed by Henry-Alex Rubin from a script by Andrew Stern.
Disconnect is upsetting, exhilarating and frightening in equal measures. It's got the ability to pierce your complacency with its cautionary tale.
Disconnect: A New Movie Sounds the Alarm About Our Hyper-Connected Lives
In the 1840s, Benjamin Disraeli, still a long way from being prime minister, wanted to wake people up to the plight of the British working class. The alarm he sounded wasn't delivered in a speech, a pamphlet, or an article -- but in a novel, Sybil, published in 1845. Ever since I read Sybil when I was at Cambridge, I've loved thinkers and writers who use storytelling to reach people and get us to act. And so it was that I found myself moderating a panel discussion last week with the director and two cast members of a movie that uses storytelling to wake us up to one of the biggest problems of our modern age: the effect that being "connected" to technology 24/7 is having on our ability to connect with our lives, ourselves, and the people we love. Like so many people, this is something I struggle with on a regular basis. That's why Disconnect struck a nerve.
