The narrative feature debut of Murderball director Henry-Alex Rubin, Disconnect opens in a limited release this Friday and paints an eerie portrait of a modern world wherein the very technology designed to keep us in touch threatens to tear individual lives apart.

Starring Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgard, Max Thieriot, Colin Ford, Jonah Bobo and Haley Ramm, Disconnect offers interweaving stories that all tie to the same theme:

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.

ComingSoon.net sat down to speak with Bateman, Patton, Skarsgard and Thieriot about the challenge of creating character relationships specifically to break them down onscreen and about the modern lens that Rubin applies to a classic existential question.

Check out the interviews in the player below and catch Disconnect in theaters April 12.
