Silk Road

  • In what might be the most laptop-centric film since The Social Network, writer-director Tiller Russell’s narrative feature debut centers on Ross Ulbricht (Nick Robinson), a 26-year-old college grad whose Libertarian obsessions led him to create Silk Road. This is an edge-of-your-seat tale of an average guy with a whale of a Jeff Bezos-style idea to create a free market on the web for drug deals, rather than forcing consumers into back-alley purchases.
