The film, which co-stars Lorraine Nicholson, Jack’s daughter (yes, she’s in the trailer), is about a teenager who turns to a life of digital crime and theft when his family hits some financial trouble. As he delves further and further into hacking, he meets a streetwise hustler who introduces him to the world of black-market trading and also a hacker (Nicholson). Eventually, they run into the head of an online crime syndicate, and their lives are turned upside down.
Anonymous, which is said to be based on a true story — but, honestly, who knows? — stars Callan McAuliffe (Flipped, I Am Number 4), Nicholson (Soul Surfer), Daniel Eric Gold (Charlie Wilson’s War) and Clifton Collins Jr. (Westworld).
Anonymous is directed by Akan Satayev, written by Sanzhar Sultan, and co-written by Timur Zhaksylykov. It is produced by Sanzhar Sultan and executive produced by Jai Khanna, Loudon Owen and Satayev. Take a look at this well-shot film from Satayev and a well-cut trailer from Jim Hale at Fishbowl Films (yeah, we asked):
