Technology. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it.
And some people really can’t live without it. That’s the focus of Disconnect, a new drama from Murderballdirector Henry-Alex Rubin that unravels a web of characters struggling with the overbearing power of cell phones, computers, and the Internet in the digital age. So that’s why my Dad made me keep a log of how long I was on AOL when I was a kid. It all makes sense!
In this exclusive clip from the film, Derek (Alexander Skarsgård) stumbles upon a discrepancy on his Mastercard bill. He questions his wife Cindy (Paula Patton) on why this might be. With a computer on her lap and a suspicious look in her eye… well, it’s safe to say there are parts of Cindy’s life that she may not be sharing with her husband. Secrets in a relationship are like information on the Internet — they’re always there and accessible. Whether they’ll be discovered is a matter of “when,” not “if.”
Check out this first look at Disconnect, which arrives in theaters April 12, below:
