‘BlackBerry’ tells the story of Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, the two men that charted the course of the spectacular rise and catastrophic demise of the world’s first smartphone.                

What the critics are saying:

This is one of those whip-smart, character- and story-driven gems that grabs you from the start and never lets go.

Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

Howerton brings something to BlackBerry, the scrappy Canadian indie about a scrappy Canadian company that changed the world, that goes above and beyond his usual lovable sociopath act. It’s not range. It’s rage.

David Fear Rolling Stone                    

‘BlackBerry’ has a great cast that contributes to the impact of this true-to-life tale, reminding us that truth remains stranger than fiction
