BlackBerry – Directed by Matt Johnson

View descriptionShare

Time to talk about a movie that really clicks. BlackBerry is a Canadian biographical dramedy that covers the history of the titular phone developed by Research in Motion (RIM) from its meteoric rise starting in the late 90s to its inevitable downfall in the late 2000s. The movie stars Jay Baruchel and Glenn Howerton as the polar opposite co-CEOs, with Matt Johnson as one of the co-founders and true heart of the film. Plus, Johnson also directed BlackBerry and co-wrote the screenplay with Matthew Miller. BlackBerry was adapted from Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff's book Losing the Signal: The Untold Story Behind the Extraordinary Rise and Spectacular Fall of BlackBerry. And the rest of the cast includes Rich Sommer, Michael Ironside, Martin Donovan, Michelle Giroux, SungWon Cho, Saul Rubinek, and Cary Elwes.

Our intro music this week is “Wind Flower” by Toti Cisneros.
