Disconnect (2012)

Director: Henry Alex Rubin
Writer: Andrew Stern
Stars: Jason Bateman, Jonah Bobo, Haley Ramm

Friends driving a friend to extremes through a fake account, and journalists trying to save a webcam boy. The relationships created through online can be complicated, and extremely fragile. This movie takes a raw approach to examining such relationships.

People’s issues rarely change, and it is no different in this connected world. Rather, the issues intensify, and human problems magnify. People can hide behind their online identities, and it can be harder for people to really connect at a deeper level.
