No.2 - Rachel Leigh Cook in Antitrust
Playing: Lisa Calighan
Job Title: Computer Programmer/ Double Agent
Geek Talk: "She's programming scalable user interfaces for the SYNAPSE modules."
In a movie designed for geeks, Rachel Leigh Cook is a pin up.
The plot of Antitrust revolves around Milo Hoffman (Ryan Phillipe) who is hired by a dastardly CEO (Tim Robbins) of a computer programming company. Turns out this guy's been stealing programming secrets from desktops around the world, and Phillipe is going to stop him, along with his cute, kookie friend, Lisa (Cook).
What most of us don't know is, the technology seen on computer screens within the movie is all real, and known as 'open source' programming. So, what Sex & The City is for women, Twilight is for girls, and Escape To Victory is for alpha males, Antitrust is to geeks - the Holy Grail of computer programming movies.
Making Rachel Leigh Cook the poster girl.
