Too Long; Didn't Read
Iain Softley's "Hackers" is the story of a young man in great distress, who finds solace in a world very reminiscent of the one portrayed by the movie. Having a bunch of close friends like the ones the movie revolves around is a rare commodity these days, especially for introverts. Having such a tight-knit group of friends also endows you with a sense of belonging, a concept which has become quite foreign in my own personal world. But the movie is just a movie, right? No real people experience adventures the likes of which are portrayed in it. Actual hacking can be quite dull: it consists of sitting in front of a computer screen for hours on end.
