This movie is the fictional story of computer programming genius Milo Hoffman after graduating from Stanford and getting out into the competitive world of computer software. In his contemplation of where to begin his career, he is contacted by Gary Winston whose character is loosely based on Bill Gates. Winston is the CEO of a company called NURV, and they are on the brink of completing the global communication's system, Synapse. They need Hoffman to help them meet their launch date, so after much thought and with the full support of his girlfriend Alice, he accepts the job. Tragedy soon after strikes and Milo becomes suspicious of the company he has been wrapped up in. He learns that trusting anyone could be a mistake, and that nothing is as it seems. Written by

After Teddy is killed, Milo is handed a CD which contains new source code that solves the bandwidth limitations. Unless Gary refactored it considerably, Milo would be able to spot Teddy, and possibly his own coding style instantly. Combined with Gary's comment "its not in the box, its in the band", it makes no sense for Gary to hand Milo such condemning proof. See more »
Tim Robbins- He is an actor who is a head and shoulder above the rest.
I saw "Antitrust" today the 1:15 matinee. I loved it. I became acquainted with Tim Robbins through 5 copies of" Top Gun." I will not give away the plot or read the last page of the book, but for those of you who like "Arlington Road" ,"Antitrust" may be a good sequel. So this movie does not win rave reviews. Movies are entertaining , some of them are informative. This one says that without computer geeks not many of us could not enjoy this modern day tool. Back in the 70's I thought the electric typewriter with a ball going across the page was exciting.
