Murderball co-director Henry Alex Rubin explores the destructive potential of the Internet in this ensemble drama starring Jason Bateman , Hope Davis , and Alexander Skarsgård . His marriage dissolving before his very eyes, a former marine ( Skarsgård ) ruins his credit by gambling online as his wife ( Paula Patton ) strikes up an intimate relationship on a popular social-networking site. When identity theft puts their lives savings at risk, the couple track down the man ( Michael Nyqvist ) they believe is responsible for the crime. Meanwhile, an introverted teenage goth ( Jonah Bobo ) becomes the victim of a humiliating prank when his two biggest tormentors pose as the girl he likes, and trick him into exposing his true identity online. When the prank leads to tragedy, the young victim's mother ( Davis ) is overwhelmed by grief as her husband ( Bateman ) explodes with rage. Later, an ambitious TV reporter's quest to expose an online prostitution racket has unexpected repercussions for the frightened young man at the center of the growing controversy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
