Starring Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgård, Andrea Riseborough, and Paula Patton, "Disconnect" may be one of the most thought-provoking films in years, painting an accurate and sometimes frightening image of life in an "interconnected" age where the internet is a powerful tool, but is often abused by both the user and those who sometime prey upon them. The New York Times writes, "The film conveys a world of too much information but too little communication, where people have become slaves to glowing hand-held devices that were designed to make life easier but have made it busier and more complicated," while the San Francisco Chronicle adds, "One of the rare films that directly responds to and expresses modern anxieties... an immensely compelling and taut thriller." (Rated R) Admission is $2, or $1 with Bengal ID.
