A hard-working lawyer, attached to his cell phone, can't find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when their secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site. They are strangers, neighbors and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today's wired world.
Richard Roeper, a writer for the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 4/5 stars and said “Even when the dramatic stakes are raised to the point of pounding music accompanying super-slow motion, potentially tragic violence, “Disconnect” struck a chord with me in a way few films have in recent years. I believed the lives of these people. I believed they’d do the drastic things they do in the face of crisis. I ached for them when things went terribly wrong and rooted for them when there were glimmers of hope. You should see this movie. Please…There wasn’t a moment during this movie when I thought about anything other than this movie.”
// The Rolling Stone said ``the performances in Disconnect are first-rate all the way``.
