True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård and Jason Bateman in new photos from Disconnect
Social media can be a curse or blessing depending on how you look at it. Sure it’s great to reconnect with old friends from grade school, but do we really need to know every single action our “friends” take throughout the day or see 4,500 photos of their kids? Not to mention how dangerous it could potentially be to post your travel plans and whatnot. So it was only a matter of time before someone made a film about the connections, both good and bad, we make online, lucky for director Henry Alex Rubin cast Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s TRUE BLOOD) and Jason Bateman in the film so at least we’ll have some pretty faces to look at.
Trying to explain the plot of DISCONNECT would be way to difficult so here’s the official synopsis: Disconnect interweaves multiple storylines about people searching for human connection in today’s wired world. Through poignant turns that are both harrowing and touching, the stories intersect with surprising twists that expose a shocking reality into our daily use of technology that mediates and defines our relationships and ultimately our lives.
DISCONNECT stars: Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgård, Hope Davis, Paula Patton, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Andrea Riseborough and Max Theriot. There’s no release date for DISCONNECT yet but we’ll keep you posted. (Playlist)
