News & Interviews for Disconnect
Critic Reviews for Disconnect
Disconnect turns out to have a complicated view of life in the digital age. Rising to scenes of real intimacy and insight, the movie is stimulating, and, at times, touching.
Handsomely shot and judiciously edited, the film benefits from a superlative cast ...
It's left to the actors to make up for the gaffes, and they're definitely up to the task.
Audience Reviews for Disconnect
I felt that while the film covered very pertinent issues that have never really well-portrayed on film before, the script fell a bit short in developing these characters or perhaps the ending. Either way, the performances here are top-notch.
Could have been worse (I get the comparisons with 'Crash' but it doesn't deserve that!) but could have been so much better (slight when compared with Magnolia) but it's still a lot of fun and rewarding enough to come back to... just not quite as thought-provoking as they would have us believe
Good movie. A definite example of how movies whose stories intertwine SHOULD be done. And, if you have kids who are social media junkies, it is a must see. Jason Bateman was especially good in a rare dramatic role. Not your typical cookie cutter happy ending. Definitely a movie people should see in today's age of technology, where everyone seems to be on a cell phone, ipad, etc. Stellar job done by all.
