Marjorie Prime: Sept. 18-21, Guild Cinema
Monday to Thursday 4PM, 8:30PM
Dir. Michael Almereyda—2017—97m
Starring Jon Hamm, Geena Davis, Lois Smith and Tim Robbins!
Eighty-six-year-old Marjorie spends her final, ailing days with a computerized version of her deceased husband. With the intent to recount their life together, Marjorie’s “Prime” relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop ever diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past. Built around exceptional performances from a veteran cast, Marjorie Prime shines a light on an often-obscured corner in the world of artificial intelligence and its interactions with mortality. Bringing us robustly into the future, Michael Almaryeda’s poetic film forces us to face the question-If we had the opportunity, how would we choose to rebuild the past, and what would we decide to forget?
“This is the rare recent stage-to-screen adaptation that actually improves on the source.”—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
“With nuance and an introspective eye, Almereyda creates a beautifully bleak, hypnagogic world in Marjorie Prime that allows its pensive themes to flourish.”—Alex Arabian, Film Inquiry
“One of the most uncompromisingly intelligent pieces of filmmaking you are likely to come across this year.”—Linda Marric, HeyUGuys
