Every era has its visionaries. The “true story” of the meteoric rise and fall of the world’s first smartphone, BlackBerry is a whirlwind ride through a wacky and ruthlessly competitive Silicon Valley. Coupled with his own brand of off-kilter humor, filmmaker Matt Johnson amazes us with this story of a ragtag band of geeks and misfits who, in between movie nights, invented the tool that briefly revolutionized the mobile device universe and, for better or worse, single-handedly rendered the world all-thumbs.  (119 minutes)

BlackBerry is FUNNY, fast and nerve-rattling. And it is always – always – intensely entertaining – The Globe and  Mail

A new business film for the ages. BlackBerry iss an INCREDIBLY INTERESTING film that dares to ask: how much would [you] sacrifice in order to succeed. – The Indiana Daily Student


A wonky workplace comedy reveling in a vibe that’s an ideal match for its subject….Research in Motion’s ebulliently geeky staff look and act like middle schoolers and converse in a hybrid of tech-speak and movie quotes…The  excitement of disruption and the thrill of creation become tangible. CRITIC’S PICK! – The New York Times
