0 Love It
Save it
A flashy face man (Hartnett) seduces the media with the inflated mystique of his Internet start-up, while his conservative little brother and business partner (Scott) sweats the fact that there’s no there there. Essentially a Cain-and-Abel story wrapped in the hip veneer of dot-com hysteria (post-Y2K and pre-9/11), August tries to bluff its way into success as a deeply felt parable of greed, loyalty and family ties, but ends up being just as fatuous as those burst-bubble paper-tiger corporations it eviscerates.
