“THE HUM­MING­BIRD PROJECT”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Jesse Eisen­berg made tech­nol­ogy work for him as Mark Zucker­berg in “The So­cial Net­work,” and he tries it again in writer-di­rec­tor Kim Nguyen’s drama by team­ing with Alexan­der Skars­gard to play cousins who aim to get an edge in re­ceiv­ing stock-mar­ket in­for­ma­tion. They strate­gize the devel­op­ment of a tunnel of fiber-op­tic ca­ble stretch­ing from Kansas all the way to New York, in­tend­ing to get a four-sec­ond jump on trans­ac­tions ... which would be enough to help them strike it very rich. How­ever, their for­mer boss (Salma Hayek) catches on to their scheme, putting their plan in se­ri­ous doubt. The film earned Cana­dian Screen Awards for edit­ing and sound. (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
