Matt Johnson’s excellent film on the rollercoaster history of the BlackBerry, set in Waterloo, Ontario has it all. It’s a corporate thriller and a cautionary tale, with searing commentary on the psychological, cultural, and social impact of the bright tech star of the 90s – the first smartphone. Jay Baruchel and Glenn Howerton star as the founder of Research in Motion Mike Lazaridis and business shark Jim Balsillie. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Baruchel and Howerton.
