This dramatic mystery film is about a woman named Marjorie who is now eighty six years old, and living out her final days alongside the electronic rendition of her late husband. She gets to recount her life with him as well as her life apart from him, as she learns to cope with his death as well as her own that soon follows. The movie has an amazing cast starring Jon Hamm and Geena Davis, who have excellent chemistry with one another. This movie has many science-fiction moments, but at its core it’s a romantic drama that will woo you and leave you wanting more. I would rate this film 4/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
A very unusual film technique about people telling stories about their life. It makes the film very slow moving, and overlapping realities. Not everyone's cup of tea, but an interesting experiment in film making.
A sci fi twist on how people could in the near future come to terms with losing loved ones and the perceptions they have about those now gone.
An AI-generated character interacts as the husband of an aging woman. Based on a play, and somewhat thought-provoking: How do we want to remember those around us when they die? Can an analog (a 3D hologram) really help us as humans? A quiet, introspective film, unlike most of today’s POW-BLAM-WHAMMO computer-generated extravaganzas. Recommended.
Very interesting idea about a product that will likely be available in the near future. The movie was very low key, with no energy in it. Would not watch it a second time.
I bet the play this film is based of is a great one to see on stage. The film, however, suffers with poor pacing and SO MUCH exposition. If I had known it was a play first then maybe I would have adjusted how I watched the film but I did not know before seeing the film. The premise/concept is still very intriguing.
Excruciatingly slow paced movie. (After 20 minutes I ran it a 1.5 X speed anD it was still agonizingly slow.) It may have been a commentary on death and dying, or it may have been a commentary on humans' increasing reliance on AI. I suppose the stiff, emotionless "acting" is excusable because the actors are playing AI images. No romance. No characters to identify with, and the script was a jumble. Save this for a night you need help falling asleep.
Great premise. Great play. So-so movie. It starts well but unravels about halfway through. Lois Smith, who plays Marjorie, is tremendous. Her first feature film was East of Eden with James Dean!
