Marjorie Prime

SUPPORT
Arizona

Jon Hamm, Geena Davis and Tim Robbins star in this haunting vision of a foreseeable future where death has become slightly less final.
When her husband Walter dies, 85-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith), who is struggling with dementia, decides to replace him with a Prime – an artificially intelligent avatar that looks and sounds exactly like Walter did when he was 40 (played by Jon Hamm). As Marjorie oscillates between presence and absence, her new Prime provides her with much-needed support and warmth. But for her daughter Tess (Davis), and son-in-law Jon (Robbins), Walter feels like a false image, an interloper who is stealing Marjorie’s memories and corrupting the fabric of what they once had as a family. Acclaimed writer/director Michael Almereyda’s beautiful and unnerving adaptation of the critically acclaimed play by Jordan Harrison explores issues of memory and mortality while raising provocative questions about our uneasy relationship with technology. (Dir. by Michael Almereyda, 2017, USA, 99 mins.,Not Rated)
