So far, this has been a good year for epic dramas set against a large-scale story of one moment or one decision’s impact on an entire group of people. And with Henry-Alex Rubin’s follow-up to the Academy Award-winning documentary Murderball, the director’s first narrative feature, Disconnect is sweeping story about the dangers and psychological impact of the Internet age.
Told through multiple interwoven story lines, the films stars Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgard, Hope Davis, Max Thieriot, Paula Patton, Frank Grillo, Andrea Riseborough, and Marc Jacobs in an intensely emotional and riveting drama. Covering everything from online identity theft to vicious bullying and sexual exploitation, Disconnect is scored by brilliant composer Max Richter—who knows how to heighten just about any moment to its utmost potential.
And today, a new clip from the film has been released, showing Marc Jacobs as the house leader of a group of young kids entwined in a very seedy, sexual world. The stills for the film also give us a look at Bateman, Skarsgard, Thieriot, and Riseborough who all take on their roles with intensity in the film that debuts this weekend.
Take a look below.
