But you might make room in your movie calendar to catch the small but powerful film “Disconnect” before it leaves theaters. It’s currently showing at UA Tara Cinemas at 2345 Cheshire Bridge Road N.E. in Atlanta and Merchants Walk Stadium Cinema at 1301 Johnson Ferry Road in east Cobb.
The indie drama stars Jason Bateman, who has spent time in Atlanta in the past for the much bigger (but not better) films “The Change-Up” and “Identity Thief.” The ensemble production explores the corrosive effects technology can have when people turn to their screens instead of each other and the pernicious power social media can have when people post irresponsibly. If your kid has an Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr, Facebook, Reddit or Twitter account, we really cannot recommend this movie strongly enough.
