OTTAWA, CANADA. October 30th 2015. FrameFlow today announced that it plans to release a feature length motion picture called “The Unsocial Network: Struggles with Latency”.
Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Meryl Streep it promises to follow the busy lives of a team of system administrators as they reset routers, check network connectivity and install the latest patches.
Mr. Clooney and Ms. Johansson play roles focusing on the network layer and the plot follows them as they struggle with high latency issues on core switches and a failing power supply on an important router. Mr. Damon plays the role of the rebel system administrator who fights with upper management insisting that the team needs the time and budget to upgrade aging infrastructure and document topology changes. Ms. Streep’s character leads a complete redesign of the corporate subnetting strategy while wrestling with personal demons related to a flaky VPN connection on her laptop.
Several prominent film critics were provided with early edits of the film and the reaction was mixed according to media reports. A.O Scott of the New York Times suggested that further editing might be required in order to bring the plot into clear focus. He was quoted as saying “There’s an exciting part at 35 minute mark where Matt Damon shouts ‘The Exchange Server is down!’ but apart from that it’s literally two hours of watching guys typing on keyboards.”
“The Unsocial Network” is due for release in time for the Christmas season and will appear in theaters across North America.
FrameFlow shares (NASDAQ:FRMFLW) closed up $2.73 on the news.
