Every era has its visionaries. “BlackBerry” investigates the brilliance of the individuals that invented the world’s first smartphone. Recounting the Canadian company’s humble yet chaotic rise to market dominance, the film is a darkly comedic telling of the tragic tale of a Canadian  company that revolutionized the way we communicate, before swiftly plummeting into obsolescence. 

It’s 1996, and Mike Lazaridis (Jay  Baruchel) and Douglas Fregin (Matt Johnson) are on the edge of creating the world’s first smartphone. Unfortunately for them, they are less business savvy than they are tech. Everything changes when cunning businessman Jim Balsillie (Glenn Howerton) agrees to join the company.

The company's value skyrockets, yet within a few short years shady business dealings, personal  grievances, and, perhaps most dangerously, the iPhone, threaten the company’s incredible success.
